The Original Burning Man
The Illustrated Travel Journal from Milan traveled the world over looking for adventure on land and sea. In one issue that I happened to read in a very old barbiere shop, I noticed what appeared to be a Burning Man competitor from 1915. The location of this third-world straw man is a little vague, but it is definitely not in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. Yet it has the charm and fire of our native hip-fest.
In the same issue is also a feature on knife-like weaponry, including a few used for ritual sacrifice. Now, that’s not a Burning Man event, is it?
