A massive wooden replica model of 17th century London was set ablaze on the River Thames on Sunday night to mark the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London that razed the city in 1666. The 120-meter-long wooden model of London’s skyline, titled London 1666, was designed by the American artist David Best, who is best known for building immense structures from wood and burning them to the ground, mostly for Nevada’s annual Burning Man festival.

The exhibitions and events marking the anniversary included, aside from the model burning, public art installations, tours, food market and an unusual exhibition of recipes and remedies for burns and scalds used at the time of the fire.
