A picture entitled “Anything but Boaring” by Jeremy Chiu was the most liked Instagram photo from Burning Man 2016 during the first week of December, per a tweet from the official organization account. The picture features a shirtless man perching upon the snout of an incredible kinetic wild boar sculpture named Lord Snort.

Lord Snort was created by Bryan Tedrick, a Northern California artist who is well known throughout the Burning Man Community and beyond for his gorgeous large-scale sculptures.

Tedrick is a master of balance and kinetic sculptures. Many of his themes involve nature and animals. He has been a regular participant at Burning Man where he relishes in being able to work in a very large scale. Besides sculptures, Tedrick’s portfolio includes public art commissions, gates, portals screens and railings. His works can be seen regionally in Kenwood, Healdsburg, and Santa Rosa.
