Suggested changes so far:
second set of curved stairs wider (agree)
more room in the head for people (agree)
make a platform on the shoulder for observation (agree)
wider base (?)
climbing wall (auto-belay $$$ or padding $)
rigging point(s) for aerialist(s) (waiting for architect to weigh in)
interior jumpy area with those little balls to fall into (I am really liking this idea, although I hate the idea of having to empty it before burning. More work!)
interior climbing area / platform scaffolding with portholes for observation
interior camera obscura (drill a series of holes to project the playa inside...I like this idea too)
bright red eyes at night
Catacombs in the base
fire poles to slide down ( :| more stuff to haul off )

Anything else?

I like the slide idea.
Access both ways to & from the top might be a problem.

I like the slide idea too, however a metal slide in the sun out there would equal lots of med tent visits. I can't think of anything burnable that would be slick enough.

Love it. I think I am ready to upgrade to helping build some art. If you can find room for a helper or two I would be honored and grateful to be able to help screw or nail stuff together. I have limited standing, walking, and climbing ability but will be able to give it my all in other ways. I am willing to dedicate 2 nights for security as well and have a nice menacing look that would deter would be early burners. I want Thurs night free though if Simon rly does burn a big fawkin dome.

I think the design already offers significant opportunity for upkilts, and the open, breezy layout will render comb-overs ineffective. Something for everybody. Whether they want it or not.

Maybe burlap bags, like the ones they distribute for the giant slide at the fair.

Make it bark like a dog. Mic at the top, filtered through some cheap voice synth. LOUD, please. Point it at the Temple.

Thanks! The nose was longer, and it really looked like Wile E. Coyote. I thought it should have a big plate with seeds and a sign that said "FREE BIRDSEED".

Chiefdanfox, this looks like a great project, and already I'm looking forward to seeing it in person. I'll keep an eye out for your kickstarter if you have one.

No really, two parallel lasers, extending vertically skyward from the point of each ear, coordinated with glowing eyes, giving it a sense of an otherworldly connection at night..

Hey, whatever the final design is, I gotta tell ya, my burning man excitement level just moved up a big notch upon learning about Anubis!

How about a slide to slide down? Ah... maybe not... might kill someone.

Second request for a slide. The newest design (it is still in development, tweaks.) has catacombs under the platform with stairs leading up, but I need the architect to to get back from his vacation and straighten me out on some feasibility and design. The problem I have with a slide is of course death, but that threat can be mitigated. The two constraints are: constructing it out of something that is either easily removed before burning, or is burnable (my choice), and placement. I can see it made from very well waxed,"Criscoed" and "Bacon Greased" hardwood ply, and it is simply sloped and the ply is ship-lapped, with sides a bit like a luge, but then what do you do, provide a bunch of those shitty snow disks for folks? At a certain point, the wax and goop wears off, and you will have many sparkle ponies mussing their finery. I don't really want the piece to actually help people into the afterlife. It might work on the inside, and it spits you out somewhere on the side of the platform onto the playa. Maybe someone else can contribute a mural that looks like the New Jersey turnpike and set it up at the exit. Rename the piece "Being Larry Harvey". I like it. Just riffing here. Actually, the slide, Anubis, rebirth, fertility, a chute, hmmmm.

What about two stairways in a helix so that people can go up one and then down the other. It would relieve congestion quite a bit even though the structure is already quite large. It could even be a rail in the middle that separates the directions.

I am hoping that by leaving it accessible 24/7 the congestion is mitigated. The stairs are about 30" wide, and like many spiral staircases, the inside step width on the second flight is uncomfortably small. To allow for a reasonable pass on either side (30") and a reasonable stair width (30") and holding the platform to 16' wide (2 sheets of plywood, and thinking in terms of trucking constraints...width 8', height 8 1/2') there is not really enough room for another set of stairs, without a complete and fundamental redesign. Part of the idea is to have people shimmy by each other from time to time, but I would not say the design is "finished", and I am still toying ways to improve or enhance ingress and egress. Bob's idea of a fire pole is actually being kicked around. Not necessarily the way I showed it, but I am thinking about it, where to place it so it works with the design, and in an area where folks can have a landing zone that is not next to a 6' drop. Again, I don't want a lot of haul off, and a large fire pole and its attachment hardware adds to that, and probably adds a significant cost, and at least two man-days of labor (X 2 on and off playa). There are a lot of hurdles on the fire pole track, but having a pole on something at burning man often results in other types of artistic expression.

Do you need stairs, other than to add fuel?
