Interview from the artist, Wayne Garber:
My mother has always been a collector of giraffes, even since she was a child. Her mother, my grand mother, gave her giraffes and I guess it just stuck as a hobby. My mother now has several giraffe figurines and collectibles ; enough for a whole house. It’s never enough though, right?
My mother recently turned 90, and that is a huge milestone. I wanted to do something special, and knowing how much giraffes mean to her, it was something I had to do.
So I began, and after several days of work, I had made a great pointillism of a giraffe. Well, just the head… It was wrapped and brought to her and it was amazing to watch her discover what was under the gift-wrapping. Though, the first thing she said when she looked at it was…
“Where’s the rest of it?!”
