White Bison of the East
Grounded in realism, fused with abstract passages and radiating the light of an inner spirit, the contemporary wildlife art of Craig Kosak presents a world in balance.
“To the Lakota, a white buffalo is a harbinger of harmony and peace in troubled times,” relates Kosak. “White Bison of the East is the first in a series of four paintings, each covering a point of the compass, that draw their inspiration from the legend of the White Buffalo Calf Woman. On her first visit to the Lakota she taught them seven sacred ceremonies, songs and their traditional ways. She said she would return to purify the world if it became too troubled. A sign of her arrival would be the birth of a white buffalo. I was thinking about the fractious and parochial nature of politics today and how nice some accord between all parties would be. White Bison of the East is my way of signaling that it is time for some of that peace.”
