"The birth of a white buffalo is so rare that it is a great event, and portends grand blessings to come. This sculpture of the rare white buffalo is named after the best known white buffalo our country has known. “Big Medicine” was born in 1933 on a Montana Indian reservation and grew to remarkable proportions. He was 6’ at his hump and 12 feet long from nose to tail. It is the strong positive symbolism that inspired me to create this sculpture. The bison not only has represented abundance and self-sacrifice to plains indigenous peoples, but with the white buffalo, the promise of a good future, and restored balance to the world." - Star Liana York
