This short documentary introduces us to Saskatchewan sculptor Russ Yuristy and one of his funky creations: a three-ton wooden buffalo commissioned by the city of Swift Current. The film chronicles the buffalo’s 240-kilometre trip from studio to park and captures the comments of bystanders who react to its strange appearance. A light-hearted look at one of the Prairies’ most unusual artists.
