Totems are monumental sculptures from the cultures of North American peoples. The word totem derives from odoodem, meaning “kinship group”, i.e. tribe.
Bisons are part of the collection 'Outside of this World'.

The children have noticed right away that those were the horns of a bison and overlaying the stools you could create an awesome animal.
It has the dual function of being stool and coat hanger, but what really matters is the game of 'evocation', the immediate sympathy aroused by this beast: a shy nice head with horns.
