Tg find out the name of the art piece and contact them. Perhaps they collected artifacts and burned them.

There was definitely a body in that "Chapel", otherwise why would someone have asked about it?

A bunch of us with Bonefire propane poofers were lined up to light the chapel on fire. We were getting ready, and I heard it going around that the body of Weld Boy, a DPW friend of mine, was in there. I said reassuring things to me Matie, Patty Cake, that they could never do that, that there were Rules and Laws about this kind of thing, that the smell of it would be horrific, and that I didn't think Weld Boy was really dead. Never the less, light it we did. As she approached it with my hand held poofer, she got a little freaked out by all the balls of fire on either side, so I took over and had her hold the tank. Poof! Boosh! I got one good fireball of on the side before all the other ten or so people had gotten it ignited enough to really start it burning. It was getting hot fast. My friend Quasar had been seemingly at random chosen to do safety, and hold the fire extinguisher earlier while the wood inside was doused with gasoline, so he implored us to back up fast, while still holding an extinguisher and gopro camera. As we backed up, I heard a call out in a familiar voice, "We loved you 'Boy!" Seeing who it was I flopped down onto the ground, and gave him a big hug, spilling his beer on my back in my reckless jubilation. There, relaxing on the playa with his smiling face lit up by the abundant heat of the Chapel, was none other than Weld Boy himself. Having been asked to participate, he was carried in on a gurney shortly before the Chapel was fueled up, carrying on and carrying his beer the whole time. He snuck out the back, and it was all part of the grand theater of the burn, who's meaning and plotline, like Weldboy himself, escapes me.
