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.
