  1. This piece was featured in last year's 'Pageant of the Masters' in Laguna Beach, CA during the annual art festival there. In the pageant, they do representations of famous art pieces using live humans as part of the tableau... this was one of them. It's a stunning display in person, we try and go every few years.
