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.
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..
Gorgeous and powerful
I love love love this piece. I thought about gifting it but ended up keeping it for myself. The work is beautiful up close, but mostly I see her across the room and feel uplifted by her pose and her presence. She is not small - a foot and half tall maybe? I am sure the info on the site is correct, worth paying attention to. She doesnt fit in the space I was thinking of, but I love the home I have found for her in my bedroom.
