The Promethean Fountain is a flaming waterfall created by Wally Glenn (Pyro Boy) and funded by Burning Man. The Promethean Fountain allows people to safely hold and interact with fire.
Named after Prometheus, a Greek Titan who was a champion of man. He stole fire from the Greek god Zeus and gave it to mankind. He was punished severely for this act. Prometheus was tied to a rock while and eagle at his liver.
The Promethean Fountain first premiered at Burning Man 2010 and was located at First Camp. It was also featured at Wally Glenn’s 2010 winter Solstice Party.
