Giraffe - 'the fight' (work in progress - still at the wax stage)
The giraffe (Giraffa) is a genus of African even toed ungulate mammals, the tallest living terrestrial animals and the largest ruminants (mammals that are able to acquire nutrients from plant-based food by fermenting it in a specialized stomach prior to digestion, principally through microbial actions.)
The most graceful and beautiful animals - always seemingly so chilled and sedate. But in the right circumstances they can be truly formidable. You only have to witness a fight between two males to understand the incredible power of these animals. They use their head like a club - with the two horns and third central protrusion on their forehead making contact, and then use the length of their neck to build speed and momentum of the blow. They continue clubbing each other relentlessly until one of them realises it is beaten or maybe one falls to the ground, unconscious. They remain stunned on the ground, vulnerable to predators, but only for a few minutes, and then they get up as if nothing has happened and wander off.
This will be a limited edition of 20 - each numbered and signed.
