“Temple of the Heart” served as The Temple at this year’s Burning Man Festival in Black Rock City, Nevada. Designed by artists Ela Madej and Reed Finlay, it depicts an upside-down flower with its stem reaching skyward, serving as both a beacon and a sundial. The Temple, which changes design every year and offers a place of reflection, is usually burned on the eighth and final night of the event. However, this year’s burn was delayed due to multiple days of rain.
