What a lovely creature this 13 ¾” tall carved giraffe is. His carved body has been sanded smooth, but you can see the carving marks on his hooves and the base that he stands on. The artist skillfully applied stain to replicate the patterns in his fur. The back side shows a lighter stain; I don’t know if the wood grain wouldn’t take the stain as well on the back or what happened. But, none the less, it is a beautiful piece of art depicting this graceful “giant” with such a sweet face. The detail is wonderful with finely carved eyes and nostrils and the upraised ears and the knobs or ossicones. We’ve searched and cannot find a signature or artist’s mark. There are some random marks on the bottom of the base, but I don’t think they are artist’s marks.
This would make a wonderful addition to your art or animal figure collection. Please contact us if you have any questions.
