Imagine the thunderous sound as a herd of buffalo moves across the vast plains, a cloud of dust marking their passage. Remember the scenes in the movie staring Kevin Costner, Dances with Wolves, where the herds of buffalo were roaming the vast prairie? This glass buffalo ornament brings back such powerful imagery with a respectful depiction of these majestic creatures and their place in American history. Standing at 3.5 inches, the ornament presents a robust buffalo, sculpted in glass, poised and calm, a fitting tribute to the animal once critical to the survival of Native American tribes.


Rich in American legacy, the buffalo was a living bounty for many tribes, providing not just meat but also materials for clothing, shelter, and tools. As settlers pushed westward, these magnificent herds faced critical threats, reminding us of our impact on nature. This finely made ornament, with its textured glass mimicking the bison's shaggy coat and curved horns, captures the resilience and quiet dignity of the buffalo. Its lifelike appearance is a beacon for the importance of preservation and respect for all creatures.


Adorning your tree with this buffalo, you're not just decorating, but also honoring an icon of the American West that has overcome adversity and continues to symbolize strength and survival. Ideal for anyone who values the grandeur of the natural world, this ornament will stand out amid the boughs, serving as a conversation starter about our history and a symbol of hope for the future of our planet's wildlife.


Text on Old World hang tag: The buffalo symbolized abundance, generosity of spirit, and the sacredness of life to native North American tribes. Buffalo 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.
