David Bowie's Ashes Scattered At Burning Man
Bowie was purportedly commemorated by 70 people at The Temple of Black Rock City.
David Bowie’s ashes have been scattered at Burning Man, according to recent reports.
The entertainment publication E! revealed earlier today that the late singer's godchild had permission from Bowie's widow Iman to take a portion of the ashes to the annual, week-long gathering in the Nevada desert.
E! wrote that one of their sources said that Bowie and his godchild "had long talks about Burning Man and what it stands for, and David loved the message behind it".
Bowie was purportedly commemorated by 70 people at The Temple of Black Rock City, the temporary community set up in Black Rock Desert for Burning Man.
The Temple is put up for attendees to pay respects to their loved ones and at the end of the week is burned to the ground.
An eye-witness told E!: "We played [David's] music the entire drive from our camp to the Temple and back… Most of us had the Bowie [lightning bolt] face paint on in his honor".
Burning Man is an annual gathering that takes place at Black Rock City—a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, US.
