Thinking About Giraffes

I'm thinking about a small silver sculpture of a dancing giraffe on a green stone base. Quite small maybe 2" high.

I'm not sure it will go past thinking, but I started looking for giraffe poems,  You can tell I'm getting word focused.  A quick search found mostly silly and not very good ones, except for this poem by Yoshihiro Okumura. (Copyright doesn't let me post it)


 

The dancing will take some imagining, but I like the movement in this photo.  And since I have a major Pratchett disc world sculpture I'm working on ( as I said), I won't know for a while if the giraffe will happen but it's good to think about.

I'm going to be in and out for the next couple of weeks but more out then in.  So, I may not be posting til the 15th or so.

I don't even know if you know that giraffes are the animal to which I have the greatest affinity. I doubt that I'm in the market for a sculpture, but it makes me happy that you're thinking about them, and I like the poem and the picture.

Not too long ago, I was surprised to learn that there are half a dozen varieties of giraffe, with slightly different sorts of spots. Depending on the intensity of versimilitude you've decided on, you might want to check them out.

Thanks. I'll definitely check them out.
