The Hunter and the Buffalo
About this artwork
A Native American warrior is hunting in the grasslands of the American west. He hears a sound from over the next rise and carefully moves in that direction. However, cresting the hill is not some pronghorn antelope or deer. Rather it's his worst nightmare, a massive bison bull. The great beast stares directly at the man. The hunter armed only with a spear freezes and locks eyes with the huge animal. In the cold morning air, the buffalo breaths a cloud of steam as it huffs read to accept the hunter's challenge.
For this work, I wanted to give the bison a real sense of menace that threatens not only the American Indian but also the viewer. So, I placed it high in the composition, in a dominant position where it looks down over everything.
