DescriptionThe "Sacred White Buffalo" by Henry Melvin Shrady (American: 1871-1922) is a museum quality bronze. This original bronze of a white buffalo is the most sacred of all animals to the plains Native American tribes. The white buffalo is not an albino buffalo because he has brown eyes and not the pink eyes of an albino buffalo. This standing massive buffalo with his head slightly turned to the left is scratching himself on the tree trunk beside him. The white coat shows the muscular content of this sacred animal and the reverence that the Native Americans have of him. This bronze is similar to the magnificent buffalo that is located at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK. The bronze is signed and dated on the back side: "H.M. SHRADY/1902". The bronze dimensions are 21 inches long by 12 inches wide and 16 inches high. The bronze weighs 60 lbs.

ConditionVery good to very fine. A excellent bronze for a museum or advanced collector.
