The White Buffalo
Piece description from the artist
White bison are extremely rare. Only about one in ten million bison born are white. They can be white for several reasons. In this case, the one I have depicted is leucistic, that is, lacking all pigment, hence it has blue eyes. The occurrence of a white buffalo is said to be a sacred sign in several Native American religions, including the Sioux and Lakota, where the birth of a white calf is a sign of prosperity.
