Giraffe Running - 2017
Hamish’s bronze Giraffe Running sculpture shows a giraffe running at full tilt, delicately balanced as she leans into the turn. Their size and extraordinary anatomy make giraffe a source of wonder. Hamish conveys both the power and the speed of his subject, and shows the surprising elegance in her gangly gait. This dynamic sculpture would make a great present for anybody interested in African wildlife. Available in limited edition.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
Having been on a research trip to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya in 2016, I came back with enough information to sculpt Giraffe, thanks to Ndito the Giraffe at Sirikoi Lodge who really helped me to understand giraffe anatomy. Ndito was very obliging in letting me incredibly close to take reference photos. I sculpted the original for Giraffe Running 2017 in clay which enabled a spontaneous finish suitable for a giraffe in motion.
