Native American Navajo Carved Wood Whimsical Folk Art ''Buffalo Bronc Rider'' by Delbert Buck, measures 10'' x 18'' x 7'', signed by artist, fabulous carving, FYI: ''Delbert Buck - Folk Artist: Delbert was born in Shiprock, New Mexico to Wilford and Jenny Buck in September of 1976. Like other Navajo folk artists, Delbert is self taught with the unusual distinction of starting at the ripe old age of nine. Delbert works in a shack behind his home. His tools are simple consisting of a hand saw, a hammer, and a utility knife. His mom lives near a wash so she picks up pieces of cottonwood for the carvings. Delbert handles the carving and the painting. His mom and sometimes, his sisters, help him ''dress'' the pieces, putting skirts on the women or wool to cover sheep.''
