This bronze depicts what was a major part of the American West. Without the buffalo as a constant, fresh meat supply the expansion of the west would have been nearly impossible. Hundreds of buffalo were butchered to feed the rail road construction crews in the latter 1860's. It was the Buffalo Hide market that drove the species into near extinction in the 1870's and 80's. From the Great Plains of Texas, KS and into Montana, tens of thousands of buffalo were skinned as this bronze depicts. Those hides were shipped by railroad to the eastern tanneries for robes.
