SYMBOL OF THE SOUTH WEST
The cow skull is an icon of the old west and Indian art that has endured for decades. Cow skulls have appeared in cowboy movies since before Tom Mix saddled his first horse, serving as a warning sign of tainted water, or as eerie silent reminders for western pioneers of hardships that lie on the trails ahead. Cow skulls are used as distinctive southwestern style decorative elements with a wide range of uses. Steer heads used as an artistic foundation, create breathtaking decorative accents and can be found in popular works of art by well-known artists such as Georgia O’Keefe and Charles Russell, and often used in art by North American Indians.
