Buffalo Signal on Marble Base
At 45" tall this is a very dramatic sculpture a huge, double size version lost wax, cast bronze, recreation of the Famous original sculpture " BUFFALO SIGNAL" after the original by Frederic Remington, one of the most prolific American artsts of all time. One of the rarer of Frederic Remington's 22 bronze sculptures, The Buffalo Signal was created by the artist as a gift for a young friend with the agreement that only one cast would be made. Remington's sculpture captures a Native American warrior sitting triumphantly atop his horse, chin raised defiantly and with an intense stare. The hide of a slain buffalo raised high signals victory. His horse lifts its front hoof and hind leg in recognition of the shared glory.
