My giraffe was delivered in a timely manner to my job and my co-workers wanted to take it home! This is a very well crafted item and very colorful. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's actually quite tall and I placed it on the fireplace mantle. Affordable and beautiful.
That is right... this one look the best out of all the giraffe on Overstock... The down side is that its small. Quality control on this one was good. I bet they had some poor kid with small hands working on the art in Indonesia to draw in the small detail. Overall good buy for me.
I loved the picture online, but the one I got sent looked evil. It had yellow eyes with a white center and a horrifying grin that made him look like he was plotting to kill you in your sleep. It looked like it belonged on the set of the Poltergeist movies. Needless to say, I sent it back. And I learned a valuable lesson - items that are unique like this - each hand painted - are best picked out in person so you can select the one you want so you don't have to worry about waking up with a giraffe holding a knife smiling over your bed. Very happy to have Overstock's help with the return.
Arrived in one day. Just perfect where a splash of color is needed. Hand carved and hand painted so each one is different. Not mass produced so you are getting a work of art for a terrific price. It is very light weight and could be easily knocked over. I would not suggest this where a small child or pet could get at it. I also purchased the "Handcrafted Eggshell\Gold 24-inch Giraffe Figurine, see my review on that one if you are interested.Overall very pleased
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.
