Noted in the past for his vibrant clay wall masks, the artist has recently created multimedia soft sculptures – his own, artistic niche – with brilliant results, as you can see.
This decorative fellow is a buffalo, an iconic animal of the Great Plains, that provided meat, shelter, tools, and more.
Abstract in form, this piece nevertheless conveys the massive bulk of the buffalo.
It is painted with a lively design incorporating rain, clouds, and a lightning arrow, in a mixed cool and richly earthy palette of colors that suggest the animal itself and the water that the symbols represent.
The medicine bundle across his back is tied with waxed thread, around a small collection of hand-gathered reeds from the artist’s traditional family homestead.
A most uncommon and decorative work of art to embellish your wall, by an unusually creative artist.
All ready to hang, and admire!
