Since man first began to paint on walls or carve in bone thousands of years ago, he sought to capture the essence, the grace, the power of the animal world. With great sensitivity, the artist has rendered a water buffalo--a domesticated beast of burden that seems somehow just this side of the wild. The animal hangs his head as if emitting a melancholy lowing noise, a sound of remembrance for the days when his kind roamed free. - (FZ.016)
