An original paper mache recycled art toy giraffe sculpture. This is a piece completely handmade by me from recycled materials. Cecile the giraffe was created by building papier mache around a wire form that I sculpted. Finished with intricate detail in oil (for a beautiful texture) and acrylic paint, and many other loving touches. I handpainted each spot, and finished him/her (you decide!) off with a heart tattoo that says "wild thing". Cecile has a beautiful purple saddle and wears a bright green scarf that I knitted. The scarf is embellished with a miniture version of my handformed wire scarf pins with one of my handmade paper beads. Cecile also features a recycled suede cord tail and dimensional eyelashes. Attached to a salvaged MDF base to which I added shiny wood wheels. I painted the wheels with dimensional paint to look like treads. This piece does roll, but is meant for decor, not play. Not recommended for children. I really enjoyed creating every detail of this one of a kind piece- I hope you like it!
Thanks so much for looking - have an inspired day!

Papier mache can be a tough, yet lightweight material. This piece won't shatter if dropped, but can be chipped, scuffed, or otherwise damaged if abused!
