stone giraffe miniature

This miniature bas-relief is actually a fridge magnet. By shaving off stone around the giraffe I am able to polish the raised stone and reveal the tawny colour giraffe while leaving the environment dusty beige. The surrounding material is scored to symbolize long grass and chipped to affect the leaves and branches of the thorny acacia tree. The stone is presented on a diagonal to emphasize the long neck of the giraffe.
