Lawn Ornament: Giraffe

Pretty cool, though still not as good as the baby Pegasus in Tipton.

I'm a little unsettled by the bird nest in the giraffe's neck. Birds will be birds, though. Probably unavoidable.

I tried googling to see if I could find out anything more about the piece, but nothing came up. Worse, I was pretty lost when we happened across this, so all I actually know about it is that it's in a pretty nice neighborhood in Iowa City somewhere. You'd think someone would have said something about a life-sized (?) giraffe in Iowa City before this. Maybe it's new. Maybe Iowa Citians are just that jaded about art. Maybe there was an even bigger rhinoceros two blocks away that hogs all the attention. It's a mystery.
