ITEM #: 12131 Buffalo Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. The buffalo symbolized abundance, generosity of spirit, and the sacredness of life to native North American tribes. Buffalo meat, hides, and bones were used for food, shelter, clothing, and tools. Buffalo freely roamed the plains in huge herds prior to the westward expansion of the U.S. Almost hunted to near extinction, this life-like textured glass ornament serves as a reminder that even the most robust animals can be threatened by over-hunting.
