Trojan Horse

In 2011, Black Rock FX was given the task of burning a 50 foot tall Trojan Horse.

The Horse was 50 feet high and over 30 tons in weight and actually rolled across the playa on solid wood wheels. Created by artists, architects, engineers, and others from around the world, this magnificent structure is designed to reflect Burning Man’s 2011 theme, Rites of Passage.
