Artist's Description

This design actually has several cultural influences. It is an ongoing theme in much of my artwork. My main influence is Mexican, specifically the Oaxacan folk art figurines. It also has Australian folk art, and Northwest American Indian artistic influences. I think it would make a particularly bright and playful sculpture that will appeal to people of all ages and race, even if they are unfamiliar with the cultural influences.

Spirit of the Buffalo originated as a public art project combining art, commerce and civic pride in Oklahoma featuring Oklahoma artists. Initial proceeds benefited the Nature Conservancy's work in Oklahoma. The website project continues through private funds.
