Ghost Dancers and Encampment

Frank Vodvorka - 5Dec17 3:16PM

My wife and I purchased a set of Ghost Dancers last year (2016) at the toy soldier show in Schaumburg, Illinois. They were - and are - lovely figures. As an artist and set designer, we immediately thought of making a diorama featuring them. The background image is taken from a Karl Bodmer watercolor (19th Century artist), and the tipis, rocks, campfire are all 1930s Elastolin.
