 Of all the animals in the world, the giraffe is the tallest and has the longest neck. A male giraffe’s head may be as much as six meters above the ground. A female is only a little shorter. Nearly half of the giraffes’ great height is in its neck and head. Even so, the giraffe has only seven bones in its neck, the same as most other mammals and each of the bones are very long. A giraffe eats leaves and grass. In order to eat grass, it must spread its front feet wide apart so that I can get its head down the ground. Mostly it eats leaves. The giraffe’s long neck enables it to eat leaves that are beyond the reach of other ground animals. The giraffe twists its long tongue around the highest leaves and pulls them into its mouth then it chews them with its teeth and long, flexible upper lip. This amazing sculpture shows the giraffe in a walking stance his left leg slightly back and his front right leg moving forward. This well cast and highly detailed 100% bronze has captured this magnificent mammal in a lifelike pose and has a very attractive patina finish and is signed by artist Milo.

FAQ's

What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.

Do you do custom work?
