Beautiful hand carving
I was very impressed with the quality of the wood carving with the giraffe. Very excited to have it displayed in my house.
Striking Piece of Artwork
The beadwork on this item is stunning. I only wish that the head and ears on mine were a little more cat-like. (I am a cat lover.)
I hesitated in purchasing for a few months but now that I purchase it ....I love it! It looks good with other pieces I purchase from Ghana..

Handcarved Dark Brown Wood Giraffe Sculpture from Ghana, "Giraffe II"$89.99
Using local tools, Ghanaian artisan Bright Kofi Agbetey skillfully hand carves this sleek wood giraffe sculpture. The figure is captured tilting its head back, as if about to pluck some leaves or a piece of fruit from a tall tree. The rustic dark brown painted finish creates the impression of a silhouette, as if the animal was seen eating after the sun has begun to set. The sculpture stands steady on a brown wood base for easy display.
