This Buffalo is calling out from the rocky ground he is fixed on. The burnt red painted wood of the terrain and rocks affixed give a nice texture to this piece.
The Buffalo looks strong and the detail for his fur has been etched in with a diagonal engraving. The brown on the Buffalo contrasts nicely with the red.
