Mombasa, the Garden Giraffe Statue
Many color issues
The size and design of this giraffe are very interesting, however, the colors are not at all as pictured! Major issues. It comes in 2 pieces which easily and securely attach to one another. I, unlike another reviewer, am not bothered by the slight demarcation you can see where the neck attaches to the body. It's only visible if you actually look for it and are within 15' of it. What makes mine more apparent is the neck colors are darker than the body colors. Problem! It also has a couple of chips at the attachment point which don't help the problem. The worst color problem is the legs which are spotted and an ugly orange...yes, orange! There is no transition to the coloring, so it looks like the giraffe stood in a bucket of orange paint 3' deep! The legs now have spots of a different variety than the body. Supposedly, an expert consultant on giraffe's caused these changes to happen, but they need to find a new consultant. I've been around giraffe's A LOT in my life with MANY different varieties of the species and NONE have legs like this!!!!! DT is supposedly changing their photo for this giraffe, but they'd be better off making the "old" one to sell as it's much closer to the real thing. My husband like it enough "as is" that he wanted to keep it. I was definitely going to return it. I'm terribly disappointed and will try to find someone to fix the color problems!

This giraffe is amazing, I purchased her for my courtyard and have her next to the large palm trees. She is a beautiful addition to the other statues I have purchased.
