ITEM #: GO-547b Bison Head Ornament by Cody Foster
Material: Glass & Glitter
A Cody Foster ornament. Remember the scene in the movie Dances with Wolves where Kevin Costner sits astride a horse galloping across the open prairie with the tribe of Indians he has befriended? All those buffalo just moving in unison over that vast expanse, being chased by the Indians on horseback. The minute we saw this ornament it reminded us of that scene. The Bison Head ornament will remind you of the symbolic abundance, generosity of spirit, and the sacredness of life the buffalo means to the native North American tribes. The buffalo were essential to the survival of the tribes, since their 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.
