100w x 870h x 80d mm
A giraffe sculpture by Boniface Chikwenhere created from salvaged sneezewood, an extremely durable species indigenous to several Southern African countries, including South Africa. While its density makes it difficult to work with, the wood glows with a beautiful light to medium golden brown colour when polished.
Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is inspired by the character of the found wood, Boniface seeing his mission as completing nature's work and revealing the animal form that he sees emerging from the grain of the wood. Often the wood is left raw in part of the finished piece, the natural and polished surfaces making a harmonious whole.
All sculptures are fumigated and shipped with a fumigation certificate.
