Skulls

Some of you have asked about my skulls… painted and otherwise… so I thought I’d answer those questions!

1.  The video of my buffalo skull discovery and excavation is a popular post.  I don’t envision ever painting it… It remains one of my Treasures just as it is!

2.  This small buffalo skull I found in Willow Creek, not far away from my old house.

3.  This painted buffalo skull is often how you find them, just the heavy forehead and horns left.

6.  A closeup of the bull skull hanging on my studio wall.  The Big Dipper, Polaris, and crescent moon are the heart and soul of a buffalo.  (not for sale)

  1. Beautiful and such a wonderful treasure of the old west. It must be so exciting to find one and dig it up! I am so amazed at what all you do. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I sure admire your collection! I have been a bone collector for years & have found many treasures riding & hiking the hills. I have a barrister book case with my smaller pieces displayed & am running out of places to put them all! Love your pics 🙂

  3. My goodness, what a wonderful collection these are. I love the painted ones, too, and have never seen any like this before. Thanks!
