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.
The details are so precise from the hatch marks to the hammered metal and the gentle shading from green to black in the middle. This is truly a work of art! I love it!
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.)
