Support the exquisite Roshanai!

What a gift to come from such a talented and active community of industrial artists. Our own Charlie Gadeken is building the elegant temple Roshanai for Burning Man 2016.

Roshanai, Farsi for “illuminate,” is a gorgeous and highly detailed structure designed in the style of Islamic mathematical art. Charlie writes, “I hope to foster appreciation for the beauty of this ancient and diverse culture, and thereby do my small part to counter the racist propaganda.”

If this project is fully funded, it will be permanently installed in the Nevada desert, so that we can visit it all year long. Fitting, because the powerful message of unity over hatred is no match for the impermanence of temporary art.

Not only has Charlie been a Flaming Lotus Girl since Day One, he runs one of the last collaborative artist workshops in San Francisco – our wonderful home The Box Shop. Charlie’s been creating exquisite sculptures for over three decades, and a project like this in his hands will be absolutely stunning.
