This giraffe is part of a larger “Africa” decoration project that I wanted to do. She/he’s about 63 inches tall, which makes her/him a premature baby-giraffe. 🙂 The head is very similar to Jonni’s giraffe head. I did not use the pattern, but it certainly was my go-to inspiration source. It’s called Wabi-Sabi because it has a hundred little faults in it (ears are not a 100% correctly placed, the head is not shaped a 100% correctly…), but like the Japanese art-ideology “Wabi-Sabi”, it’s the imperfections that makes it perfect, right? At least it puts my mind at ease. After taking a closer look at photographs, it turns out that the combination of patterns and the color of the spots makes it something between a rothschild giraffe and a reticulated giraffe. It’s not supposed to stay outside, but the grass makes it look like a more “natural” habitat. Enjoy!
