Carved Cottonwood Bison
Large carved bison by Leonard Yellow Horse.
Weathered cottonwood roots are sourced from dry riverbeds on the Pine Ridge Reservation, in the Badlands, and throughout the Black Hills. The locations can be treacherous! Then the contour and unique characteristics of each root dictates the form of the piece. Signed and features unique detail. Hand carved, polished with linseed oil, and finished with a torch tool.
