Black Rock Desert, Nevada, August 30, 2007—A participant enjoys a light art installation during the annual Burning Man festival near Gerlach.
Organizers of the festival are trying to rebuild the 40-foot-high statue of the Burning Man's effigy after an arsonist set it afire four days ahead of the scheduled finale on September 1.
Upto 40,000 revelers are expected to attend the finale on Saturday. The festival began in 1986 as a party at Baker Beach in San Francisco. It moved to its present location at Black Rock Desert in 1990.
