Artwork Description

A fact well known about giraffes is that on any grassland or savannah this guy stands head & shoulders above the rest, but something less known is that the Bushmen of southern Africa have medicine dances named after some animals. The giraffe dance for instance is performed to treat head ailments. And how the giraffe got its height has been the subject of various African folktales,
including one from eastern Africa which explains that the giraffe grew tall from eating too many magic herbs.
So lesson for the day slooow down on your magic herb intake! :)
