Painted Buffalo Bull Skull: Red Hand

Current stock: 0


Commercially prepared and painted by Non-Native American artist Dan Chapman, Sturgis SD. He paints the image of a Red Hand print on the forehead of this bull buffalo skull.

Dan uses a special blend of paints to create the vibrant imagery of the hand print. He leaves the horn covers natural but finishes the open end (of the horn covers) with tanned leather, large leather strip clusters, glass beads, metal bells, braided buffalo hair and a braided sweet grass.

Dan tells the story of the skull,”The hand print is a sign of ownership, used by those who provided for the people. The hand print also signified touching an enemy in battle.”

This painted buffalo skull is ready to hang.
