A heavy bull sculpture of an American Bison. The bull has been polished lightly to reveal a subtle golden hide. The bronze American bison bull sculpture is a robust statue that weighs up to 4.5kg, making the statue very dense. The bronze bull has been handmade by our Indonesian crafts(wo)men with much care and attention to detail.
Bulls epitomize masculinity in the animal kingdom, symbolizing strength and power in both their physical and spiritual presence. The symbolic nature of a bull’s strength is not only physical but also mental and emotional.

Our bronze sculptures are made from upcycled metals such as old pipelines. Our craftsmen and women collect this scrap waste which they then put in an oven at very high temperatures. Once the scrap waste pieces melt, the new raw material is ready to be used. We then use this virgin material to make our bronze sculptures. As bronze is a very eco and labour-intensive material to mine, we feel it makes much more sense to reuse the material that has already been created than to extract it – again. By doing so we are trying to close at least one waste loop.
Lastly, when it comes to our working conditions, we work exclusively with Indonesian craftsmen and women in both Bali and Java. This piece specifically was made in Java, Indonesia. All of our craftsmen and women get paid a living wage that exceeds what Indonesian Law requires. Their income is enough for a comfortable home, food, education, ceremonies, and more.
