Product Description & Reviews

The giraffe and handler is a common motif branching across several cultures and time periods. The giraffe was considered an exotic animal since ancient times and Roman emperors, Byzantine and Muslim rulers, and premodern European sovereigns saw this animal as both a sign of luxury and a symbol of diplomacy. The giraffe being pulled by a handler is a common motif found in ancient mosaics, medieval ceramics and carvings, as well as drawings in manuscripts. Here at the arabesque we designed a decorative home or office decor piece. The woodburned design on a 6 inch diameter natural birch round depicts a scene from a medieval Fatimid ceramic plate made in 11th century Cairo. The bottom base of this piece measures 8 x 8 inches. We included this piece as part of our Break Free series. Rather than follow the traditional age-old motif of the handler pulling around a roped giraffe, our brass vintage giraffe from the 1960's is breaking free from the original art. So if you admire independence and individualism - and love giraffes - this piece is for you.

Abstract Cross Handstitched Artsy Gift Mixed Media Textile Collage -Cross
By PegasaurusArt
Pushing through frustration can yield great rewards - and it is especially satisfying when it is a reflection of one's faith. This piece began as something else entirely but consisted of the same materials. I was particularly enamored with the brassy button and the soft sheen of the brown silk. But hours of stitching just got bogged down into staleness. Abandon and cut my losses? At least cut up and shred out of sheer spite! Then it magically fell into place before my eyes - repiecing the
