This is a gorgeous large pair of bronze giraffes, dating from the last quarter of the 20th century.
 
These life-like bronze statues feature two delightful giraffes, one with her head down in search for grass and one standing tall with head upright. Both statues are very realistic - they feature the typical short mane runs down the length of their long necks, and their coat is covered with a blocky pattern. Indeed, their heads are topped with bony horns, and their tails are tipped with a tuft of fur. 
 
Equally at home indoors or outdoors, this fantastic bronze garden ornaments of two giraffes could be placed to dramatic effect in many locations. 
 
Imagine having this lovely pair of bronze giraffes artfully placed in a garden woodland or perhaps as an arresting feature in a large vestibule or hall. Either way, the incredible attention to detail and fine craftsmanship of these fine bronze sculptures are sure to be a talking point.
 
These high-quality bronze statues are hot cast using the 'lost wax' (cire perdue) process.

Lost Wax Method - sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
