This is an original walnut wood carving of a bull bison, (or buffalo), titled "Trouble Ahead".
Carving dimensions are approximately 10" x 5 1/2" x 7".
Each carving is signed and numbered on the bottom by Joan. When she completed her first piece at age 13 she marked it on the bottom of the base as #1, her second as #2 and so on. The number on each piece indicates it's place out of all the carvings she has ever completed.
To dust, apply a light coat of lemon oil with a paint brush and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
