The animal subject of this box figurine is called a buffalo in the US and a bison in the UK. This buffalo looks scruffy because it is molting its heavy fur, needed for harsh winters on the plains. The interior shows a buffalo taking revenge on an early settler. Buffalo once roamed in the plains in huge numbers, but were then reduced to about 500 animals. Thanks to conservation efforts, the buffalo has made a come back. The artistís signature mouse is hiding under the bisonís right foreleg.
