Buffalo Skull Number Five

Acrylic on Metal


The North American Bison is respected as a symbol of the divine because for Native Americans, the buffalo was a “banquet” for the people. Because of the American buffalo’s great importance to the people, a buffalo symbol or skull is present in all sacred rituals. It stands as a reminder of this great animal, which gives completely of itself for others. It is a symbol of self-sacrifice; it gives until there is nothing left. The people in their lives imitated this. To be generous and give what you have to others in need, or to honor them, is one of the most highly respected ways of behaving.


It’s drawn on cold pressed steel using acrylic paint pens. The background metal is rusted and painted. Allowing the paint to mix with the rust creates a unique, weathered color and expression. This particular background has only one coat of white paint, thus allowing the rust to completely bleed through. The edges are wrapped in patinaed copper. The back is finished and has D-Rings for hanging. Overall size is Approximately 23” X 26”
