Like chalk and cheese, buffalo and bird seem to have nothing in common. The former is strong and large, spending its whole life working in the fields. The latter is adorable and much smaller and can freely fly in the boundless sky. Nevertheless, they become close friends in this painting.
Through the image of these familiar animals, together with his excellent language of art, the artist successfully delivers an inspiring and humane message – the appreciation of a true friendship regardless of any obstacles or differences.
