Mandan Buffalo Dance

26” H x 11” W x 19” D

Edition of 35

Sold

The Buffalo Bull Dance of the Mandan was witnessed by both George Catlin and Karl Bodmer in the early 1830’s.  It was then noted that the Mandan men had a series of six societies with the most important being The Buffalo Bull Society.

My sculpture portrays two men engaged in the society’s Buffalo Bull Dance.  The figure with the full buffalo mask, ceremonial lance and wolf tails trailing behind his moccasins would be the society leader.
