High winds and a 31-foot tide Tuesday demolished most of the "100Stone" installation set in place at Point Woronzof in Anchorage on Saturday.

Of the 74 statues originally anchored on rebar stakes along the beach, fewer than a dozen remained standing by 10 a.m. Wednesday.

The human forms modeled from body casts were scattered among shore ice chunks in prone positions. The gray concrete covering had been breached on most, exposing large patches of white plaster.
