Frederic Remington (American, 1861–1909), Indians Simulating Buffalo. Oil on canvas, 1908. Toledo Museum of Art. Bent over their grazing ponies with buffalo skins thrown over them, two Native Americans of the western plains employ a time-honored hunting trick of disguising themselves as bison. A wagon train barely visible in the distance, however, suggests the camouflaged men are scouts rather than hunters.
