North American Buffalo Bison Tatanka Sculpture Statue. There’s a dramatic posture in this elemental sculpture of the sacred buffalo, believed by Native Americans to represent the Earth itself. Uncanny in its artistic rendition of the powerful musculature of these aristocratic animals, this sculptural work pays homage to the mystical beast revered for centuries. Our gallery rendition is hand-cast in resin and finished in bronze to capture each exquisite detail. This sculpture is inspired by traditional southwest art but is not an Indian product or the product of a particular Indian tribe or organization.
