The_Nightwatch_by_Rembrandt

The Night Watch is a painting by the Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn that was finished in 1642.  Considered one of his most famous, it is displayed at the Netherlands national museum, Rijksmuseum, in Amsterdam. In April this year, to celebrate the reopening of the Rijksmuseum, which underwent renovations over a 10 year period costing about $480 million, a flashmob recreated The Night Watch in a local shopping mall. Brilliantly done. I just had to share.
