Title: BUFFALO COW AND CALF
7"H x 10"L
Bronze Walnut Base
The American buffalo was the most significant and important animal on the high plains. It was estimated that in 1492 when Columbus discovered North American that approximately 60 Million buffalo existed.
The buffalo not only provided food, shelter, and clothing for the Plains Indians, but also became a commodity and a source of personal financial gain to the early for traders.
The survival of the buffalo was due to its skill of endurance and keen awareness of its surroundings. Speed and agility helped to keep the buffalo alive.
The artist captures that tense moment of survival by creation a buffalo cow and calf that have just been spooked. The reaction is to burst into a full run to escape. The calf is close to its mother's side looking for all the protection possible in the moment of escape.
