The Buffalo Runner / Charles Marion Russell

Essay/Description

Leather album page with a photograph of a bronze of an Indian chasing a buffalo on horse with a bow and arrow. Remarks for the photograph include, "Indian, hunting and shooting a buffalo cow with bow and arrow which animal furnishes him with food, clothing and shelter. The Indian always shoots the buffalo back of the short ribs so the arrow will penetrate deep without hitting the ribs, but never between the ribs as many are led to believe. This is clearly shown in the bronze."
