Building the Temple of Whollyness

Here's your daily dose of John Curley photo love from the playa — today featuring the raising of the Temple of Whollyness with the Temple Crew! No screws, nails or any fasteners used, the entire 5-story structure interlocks with itself. Remember the climbing tower beneath the Man last summer? Same artist! HOLY WOW!

Raising the Man

More photo-love from John Curley, documenting the building of the 2013 Man base and raising of the Man! Since I'm not going this year, I planned on tuning the whole thing out. Can't do it. Can't look away. Thanks for bringing us there John!

(Hint: you might want to look at these
and Curley's other photos while listening to BMIR Radio, live & direct from the playa!)
