Giraffes are some of the most curious creatures out there. With their beautiful long necks, they are an icon of African wildlife. Always imagining they will be around forever, it’s hard to believe that their numbers have declined by 30% in only 3 decades. Poaching and the destruction of their habitats have left giraffe numbers to dwindle. As part of the series ‘Come out for a better tomorrow’, the giraffe cautiously looks out of a manhole, bending its neck backwards to check if it’s safe to come out. This sculpture series calls for awareness of our impact on the world and to allow every living creature the right to feel safe and loved.
