statue stolen from installation

I was part of the group that built the Wholly Burger. If you visited the installation you may have remembered a small Buddha statue painted to resemble a fast food worker on the altar within. He was taken, I think Saturday night. I only hope that those responsible will someday understand the bad juju they have brought upon themselves. The Buddha was an integral part of the satire played out by the temple, and a member of our camp spent hours painting it. If anyone knows what happened to the Buddha, it would be much appreciated.
And by the way, I hope the Burger gave our fellow burners something to think about...

Wholly Burger rocked!!! That was one of the best pieces on the playa this year IMO.

Bad Juju

We were talking about the statue being stolen. It's such bad karma, that person will probably bleed from their ass for 3 weeks. It sucks to think that someone would steal from a piece of art from the playa. Is this a sign that the world is inflitrating our paradise?
