Early on in sculpting I was working on training my eyes to see reality not just my perception of reality. Having a real Buffalo Skull in my possession gave me the unique opportunity to do this. This piece is a detailed study of the skull which was calipered down to this small size but it remains fairly anatomically accurate.


  • Bison once roamed the Plains of North America by the millions, providing food, clothing and shelter to the early inhabitants.
  • By the late 1800’s, due in large part to hunting, the bison, also commonly referred to asbuffalo, were nearly extinct.
  • The males or bulls could weigh up to 2,000 pounds and could measure about 6 feet tall at his withers.
  • The female or cow, was considerably smaller at 1,000 pounds and between 4-5 feet in height.
  • Babies (calves) weighed in at between 30-70 pounds at birth.
  • These foraging mammals grazed the Plains anywhere from 9-11 hours a day.
  • These animals, while massive in size, could run up to 35 miles per hour. Not only were they fast they were quick, they could swim and jump.
  • They have a lifespan of 10-20 years.
