Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners. Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use. We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings. Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage.Damage, Repair: eye and ear cracked on side of face (see pictures below)Additional Information: Mukwa or Mukungu wood. I spent many hours in South Africa in July, looked at hundreds of giraffes, and carefully chose the best. Zimbabwe's horrific social and economic woes have reduced tourism to a trickle, and so many sculptors are making their way with their giraffes to South Africa. I can only get them when they're being sent home in a container--otherwise air shipping is prohibitive. Zimbabwe giraffes are, in my opinion, vastly superior to those being carved in Kenya. Zimbabwe is home to Shona sculptors, and the best of the giraffes, carved by both Shona and Ndebele, are by turns regal, humerous, and majestic. Each has a different expression. You have probably been reading about Zimbabwe's agony. More than half of the population will starve without international aid, and the carvers are no exception.Giraffe Carved Zimbabwe 23.5 inches Handmade African Giraffe Carved Zimbabwe 23.5 inches Handmade African Price: $65.00 Shipping: $18.75 Quantity Available: 1Giraffe Carved ZIMBABWE 23.5 inches Handmade AfricanTitle: GiraffeType of Object: Carved giraffeEthnic Group: ShonaCountry of Origin: ZimbabweMaterials: WoodApproximate Age: ContemporaryDimensions: 23.5 inchesOverall Condition: Good. with a shallow crack in one side of bodyMukwa or Mukungu wood.
