The Circle of Regional Efficgies is comprised of wooden sculptures created by Burning Man Regional groups from around the world! This year's configuration will see 4 circles of six effigies placed around the base of the Man that will burn together on Thursday night to create the world's largest intentional simultaneous Burn!
Guided by the Ten Principles, CORE teams work together throughout the Spring and Summer to create art that celebrates their Regional identities and showcases the collaborative artistic efforts of their community members. The CORE Project is a celebration of Burning Man's Regional Network and of the work that groups throughout the world are doing to nurture and support the Burning Man ethos as a global cultural movement.
2013's Circle of Regional Effigies will include the highest number of international Regional groups to date with groups from Taiwan, Israel, The Netherlands, Lithuania, Czech Republic, and France joining the circle.
