Howlite, commonly called White Buffalo Turquoise, are the natural stones they used in covering these two huge bison. The white one with copper is natural stone and the blue is an assembled product. So "technically", these are not "turquoise" covered, but they sure resemble turquoise in both color and veining. These are both absolutely stunning. I've never seen any stone covered bison skull this massive or this striking.
The copper wrapping over the edge of the horn cap just sets off the piece. The horn caps themselves were left natural, with all the scars of years of rut and survival. If you want a showpiece, here they are!
The white one measures 25" from horn tip to horn tip and 29" horn tip to center jaw. The blue one is 28" tip to tip and 27" tip to jaw. Any way you look at it these skulls each cover an area of close to 4 square feet each!
These two bison bull skulls were massive without the stones, certainly over 10 years old. With the Howlite, grout and copper they now weigh in excess of 30 pounds. We will provide a wall hanger strong enough to hold it up ... if you want to hang it, or it can sit on a table, hearth or porch just as is.
We prefer you pick them up here in Goodnight, but if you want them shipped we will take them to the shipping center of your choice in Amarillo, Texas for them to get to you. Fed Ex and UPS both have several stores, and there are quite a few independent shippers. If you need assistance with shipping, let me know.
There is also a door to door service called "U-Ship" that we have used for many fragile items, always successfully. Understand that shipping and packing is "extra". If you do come to get them and want to overnight, we'll put you up in our Goodnight Country Inn at no cost. Check that out on it's own site: https://goodnightcountryinn.com/
$2350 for either skull. Only one of each available now, but we can take orders for future delivery. Want the pair? Call and we can discuss.
Call with questions, especially if you are an overseas buyer. Might not work for some countries into which we usually ship softgoods.
