Psst... It's not what you think

In September, 2008 artist Thom Ross recreated a 1902 photograph of Buffalo Bill Codyand his "Wild Weest Show", his traveling troupe of Native Americans, in front of the Cliff House at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. I was lucky enough to drive by there that day. I'm embarrassed (but not afraid) to admit that my first thought was "oooh poneys!" and second thought was "I freakin' love Indians" before realizing that these were neither and that I'd stumbled upon an art installation of hand-painted standees.
