Western American Buffalo Bison Skull. The reason we specify "AMERICAN" Buffalo is because the AMERICAN Buffalo (Bison) is known for its MASSIVE skull size. And the pictures just don't do an adequate job of showcasing just how BIG this skull is.

One of the big things going in western decor right now is people taking skulls and either painting.....overlaying (beadwork etc).....or carving designs on them.
One thing Rick and I noticed is that nobody seems to offer really good quality EXTRA LARGE and Heavy skulls for this. So many that we see listed are completely weathered (i.e. porous) and worn away. Hardly seems practical especially considering they sell for MULTIPLE hundreds of dollars as pieces of art once an artist is done with it.
THIS skull HAS been cleaned. It is suitable whether you want to use it as a project (paint....beads.....etc) OR if you simply want to hang it on a wall.
It has the REAL horns that originally came on the head.
We only offer the BIGGEST majestic Buffalo skulls. They're much bigger than the more common "cow" or "steer" or smaller bison skulls and are perfect for any manner of projects. Some prefer to decorate these (paint, bead overlay, carving, etc). And one of the LATEST things seem to be people electrifying them so that the eyes light up (LOL....think MAN cave). We leave that to you to decide. Free shipping to the lower 48 United States
The horns are 22" tip to tip. The skull alone measures 19 inches LONG top to bottom (NOT counting the horns).....The skull alone sits approx. 7" tall (laid down floor to top of skull).
The horns simply slip over the part of the bony material we've left below them. When Rick ships this piece, he will remove the horns to prevent damage in shipping. When you receive them, all you will need to do is simply slip them back over the bony portion of horns that protrude out.
We've noticed there are a lot of fake "resin" skulls making their way into the market of late. Please rest assured that our skulls are 100 percent REAL.
The one you SEE in the pictures is the EXACT one you will receive. THIS piece costs a bit more because it is SO big that it ships as "oversized". Oversized boxes don't fit through the normal sorting machines. Therefore they require extra handling along each hub in their journey. And because of that, we have to charge a bit more for it.
MOST items ship within 24 hours. Obviously if you're ordering a custom item we will have to have time to create it but we'll be happy to let you know prior to purchase if you're on a deadline. We ship Mon.-Fri. via UPS or USPS Priority (and sometimes USPS ground depending on package size/weight and distance). They pick up from our shop (which is here on our acreage) every M-F. We're on a first-name basis with our drivers and they go above and beyond for US so that we can do the same for YOU. We upload tracking numbers to etsy upon shipping. We will ship international but because of the variety and size/weight of the different items we sell we simply ask international buyers to contact us for an accurate ship quote. We'll get back to you FAST and we'll revise the listing with the quoted price if you want it.
We're Easy with payments. We offer every payment method that etsy allows! We just ask that if there's going to be a delay in payment over a few days....shoot us a message so we can make a note it it. Texas buyers pay sales tax (sorry....we sell in Texas and they require it of us)
