This year's Burning Man – a gathering of more than 70,000 people in Nevada's Black Rock Desert – had the theme of "Da Vinci's Workshop," as organizers asked participants to explore the similarities between 15th-century Florence and the 30-year-old festival in their giant, temporary city. And while the artists and enthusiasts may not have succeeded in starting their own Renaissance, they were able to create a beautiful and imaginative community, if only for a few days. Here, a look at some of the most impressive pieces and scenes from Burning Man 2016.
