Memories of the savannah appear on his face as a giraffe's thoughts are far away. The whimsical doll is dressed in handloomed ikat cloth. The word means "to knot" in the Malaysian language, and the threads are tie-dyed before weaving. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya crafts a lovely collector piece.
The doll can be posed in a variety of positions. Semarajaya suggests it can be displayed alone or on a base.
