This David Smith or Alberto Giacometti Spotted Giraffe Heavy Metal Sculpture, Is In Good Condition For Its Age. This sculpture due to the heavy metal was created or crafted with skill and craftmanship. Someone has written 1957 on the bottom as a note or momentum date. (Size: 2 x 19)
To my knowledge, this sculpture has never been exhibited and may have been in storage for many years. This sculpture was purchased in a small shop located in a small college town in the USA. If you need more photos I will return to the storage and take them at your request.
