Leather Giraffe by Deru


A half-century ago, a German company called Deru made beautifully crafted figures of various animals with an imaginative, origami-like technique of crimping/sewing/riveting a single piece of leather. The way a manipulated piece of leather can so accurately and expressively capture the grace of an actual giraffe is an amazing thing to behold. Only the baby giraffe is available. It measures 11 inches tall x 3.5 inches wide, and is priced at $900.
