traditionally painted livestock cattle skull.
acrylics done in traditional first nations style also incorperating a few modern day details like pin stripes and curvey feathers!
total time painting skull about 7 or so hours plus 4 hours in photoshop elements.
done over this past long summer.
why were the buffalo so important to the native peoples!?
the people of the plains recieved everything from the buffalo-food,skins for the tee pee,tools,toys,weapons,trading goods,medicine and much more.
the buffalo were a connection to the creator.
the lives of the people once revolved around the buffalo.
the buffalo provided for the people spiritually,culturally and socially...
the buffalo gave life...
the buffalo IS life.
....something to reflect over in the busy world of today where many miss the deep connection between the people,the animals and mother earth who nurtures us all.
I try to respect life because we only have one to live.
