The Effigy


The Effigy at Lakes of Fire is the pinnacle of the event. It is the first and largest sculpture at Lakes of Fire. Built by a wonderful crew of volunteers, the Effigy represents the community effort to build something bigger than ourselves. It’s a place to play, reflect, relax and more. It’s burned in a jubilant celebration on Saturday night, the final night of the event.

The Lakes of Fire Effigy now has a long history under its belt. Please check out the previous effigies (on the right!) to see the rich culture of Lakes of Fire.

The future looks bright for the Lakes of Fire Effigy Project and the new process of sharing project leadership with a new community member each year. This tradition will burn into the future creating more and more combinations of communal effort just like the first Beta year that started it all.
