Reflective Giraffe Family, sculpture, bronze on marble, 18”
18" bronze sculpture on marble base.
"The sculptor’s husband was quite tall and thought of himself as a giraffe. As a result, she had fun creating families of giraffes. This piece depicts a loving family interacting with each other. The 'reflective' aspect of this piece relates to her husband’s work and renowned book entitled, 'The Reflective Practitioner.'"
