Twiga of Life Giraffe Painting by silvercrossfox Twiga of Life Giraffe Painting by silvercrossfox
Twiga means giraffe in Swahili and is part of our Christmas tree at work. I drew the giraffe and painted both of them, another individual did the actual cutout. He has made props for theater, so he is quite good at it. (I wouldn't want to use those saws...)

Both the giraffes will be placed with a tree (body of baby will be behind the base of the tree) and on the tree we will have ornaments. The money made from these ornaments will go directly to conservation. Essentially give money towards conservation and receive an ornament. :D

The giraffe mother (adult) is about 7ish feet tall... so, I had to climb up a small step ladder to paint the head. Fun times.

p.s. the carving behind them are elephants from a railroad from Africa (in our "Elephant Room") :)

Do not use this image!! I am showing my work and that is all. Thank you!

What a cool job you must have to get to do stuff like this!!  These are beautiful, I especially like the way the baby giraffes mouth is moving to the side.
