The colorful paint job is very fun. This is tall and light weight, but well balanced. Suggest placing where it won't get knocked over easily. Could even put a little 'stick-um' tape on the bottom to assure it stays upright, depending on where you display it. I do like it a lot because the painting is different than pieces from other countries.
I had mixed reactions to this Giraffe. The painting of it and the colors are really nice. But it is not very 'substantial' and I would be afraid it would fall over easily. There was a chip in the side of one leg already. I wanted to use this item along with the Elephant and the Lion but ended up returning all 3. they did not go together size-wise and no arrangement of them looked balanced. The creative colors and designs were the best part of each of these items.
