    So artist in Seattle reproduced Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Indians that he used to tour with. In 1902 they posed for a picture on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, I have included a copy of the original. He placed these reporductions on the beach on the same formation as an exhibit for the next few weeks.

    I plan to go back early tomorrow morning to try and get a panorama before any people show up on the beach. Here are few pics of his amazing work.

    So what was the purpose of the recreation.... was it an anniverary of the event or what, maybe just boredom?

    Very cool whatever the motivation.

    I guess the artist also recreated the Battle at Little Bighorn as well and the reaction was so good that he wanted to do another exhibition and decided to reproduce this photograph. He says it is not meant to be historically accurate, rather his artistic expression of the photo and hopes that the people who come to see it can find the humor, magic and pathos that he finds inherent in the 1902 Photo.

    the artists name is Thom Ross from Seattle he has a website I believe.
