This Water Buffalo was carved by a Vietnamese gentleman sitting in the dirt. Then his kids carved all the texture in it. It was moved from base to base and that’s how the damage was done. Witch I think added to the pieces over all History. Flying around on Air Force cargo planes to his next base. It’s solid wood and weights 11 lbs. It’s a male Water Buffalo witch is the work force of Vietnam at that time. It was carved around the 1960’s. Very detailed work. The kids have lived with this animal their whole life to carve the muscle tone so accurately.
