The Buckaroos

Available — Call for price

A great addition to our Collection Series. It is titled "BUCKAROOS". The imagery highlights Lisa's masterful art depicting longhorn cattle and working cowboys. Notice the "cowboys" are borrowed from Charles Russell's iconic work! The images and western scroll are all hand carved, hand painted, and antiqued, with the backgrounds hand painted! Every stitch on this saddle is done by hand - there is NO machine stitching on the entire piece.

All edges are finished with kangaroo lace....buck-stitched or Spanish Plait. 500 feet of lace was used, and also covers the rigging 'D's. We've used Sunset Trails Silver to honor the CLASSIC silver look of the 1930's. Notice the sterling, hand engraved conchos with their overlay of longhorn and buckaroo horsemen! These center overlays were actually "struck" from the 1920's dies!

Over 600 hours went into this work. It includes a magnificent large handcrafted wooden stand built by master wood worker Andy Sanchez, complete with inlays of longhorn design (see the stand in the slideshow below).
