Buffalo Statues

There is a display of decoratively painted buffalo statues all through downtown Custer. I photographed twelve different buffalo, all that I could find, and assumed this is all that there was. I found them so very different that it definitely warrants a trip to downtown Custer.

[Gerald D Massey, 07/09/2012]

The buffalo are smaller than life size, but life-size buffalo would have probably been too expensive. The community project was several years ago, but some of the herd survives.
