Description


One of a Kind, Sculpted from beautiful African Black Perypholite(Wonderstone)
on black granite base. Size: H-14", W-10", D-10", Wt-55 lbs.

Sitting Bull did not take part in Custer's defeat at the Little Big Horn on the 25th of June, 
1876, that fateful day he was in the hills praying to his Creator for help to defeat his enemy. 
Two days after the battle 4000 of the Sioux people escaped north to take refuge in Canada, 
near the Cypress Hills. When roaming the hills as a boy, I could still imagine his presence.
The Buffalo emerging from all sides of the sculpture represent the provider of all things to 
maintain their Native way of life. Story tellers put it this way:
"The buffalo came from the center of the earth through a hole the Creator opened to release them. 
Coyote, the Trickster, saw his chance to create some havoc. By drawing the Creator's attention 
away from the hole with a fake emergency he would forget to close it, allowing millions of buffalo 
to escape. To punish the people for not protecting their land from the distruction of the 
white intruder, the Creator sent the buffalo back down the hole to the center of the earth to 
where they came from."
