Native American artist Mike McLeod hand paints the symbol for hail on this buffalo skull. The elements play an important role in the lives of the Plains Indians.
The skull is commercially processed and made ready to hang. Mike paints the skull with acrylic paints. He wrapped red wool cloth at the base of each horn and then leaves the horn caps more natural and not polished. Mike also hangs clusters of feathers, horse hair dangles, metal beads and glass beads with red wool cloth strips. He finished the center of the skull with a quilled wheel.
