Fire Sculpture

This fire sculpture is a real crowd pleaser. It stretches along in front of the viewers for around 30 meters, and is around 4 meters tall. The flames travel along the cloth-outfitted frame like a fuse, and will keep burning for up to 30 minutes. It signals the end of the festival, and the crowd, as well as the firemen, are getting ready to clean up and leave.
