Commemorate the spirit of the buffalo with the Tatanka - American Bison Sculpture by Big Sky Carvers. As part of their unique Montana Bronze collection, this sculpture is made from a blend of proprietary resins. Not made from actual bronze, this makes the piece lighter and more affordable. You can display it wherever you like because it's easy to raise up on a high shelf where everyone can see. Big Sky Carvers is a company with a humble Montana beginning. Since having been purchased by Demdaco, they have moved elsewhere but still have all of their items designed in Montana.
Tatanka is a Lakota word meaning "big beast". Because of their reverence for the American bison, it came to represent life as they provided so many of the vital supplies for living on the prairie at that time: food, shelter, tools, clothing, etc. The Lakota people used every bit of the buffalo and had a unique connection to the animal. Today, American bison has become synonymous with the American West, often to be seen in areas like Yellowstone National Park.
