Artist's Description

This project seemed like a good opportunity to do something using maps. I always liked maps when I was a kid -- they're colorful and you can study them for a while. If you walk all the way around this statue, you can see the 168 world capitals, as well as Oklahoma City.

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.
