Nevada's Burning Man counter-culture festival has inspired spin-off events around the world that are now being studied by Swiss government anthropologists and sociologists.
Larry Harvey, who began the Burning Man tradition in 1986 when he and a group of friends set fire to an oversized wooden man on a beach near San Francisco, passed away aged 70.
Although organisers of the art and music celebration cancelled burns through Sunday afternoon after a man ran into the 'Man Burn' event fire, the Temple blaze took place, a signature endpoint of the US festival.
