Giraffe Weathervane

Rothchild Giraffe Weather Vane


Our Giraffe Weather Vane, Giraffa camelopardalis, is truly one of our most spectacular. The current price* listed includes all the gold leafing necessary to show off its distinctive contrasting markings. When made in the small size (1-foot sculpture piece), the markings are, of necessity, somewhat simplified but when made in the medium, large or extra-large sizes, are very detailed.

We can even replicate the markings of different types of giraffes such as the Nubian, Masai or West African. For example, the giraffe shown here is based on a Rothschild Giraffe. As the exposed copper sections begin to weather, the contrast will become more and more pronounced.

* Because the cost of gold leaf fluctuates frequently, it is possible that the price for this weathervane could go up or down based on current market conditions. Please verify pricing with us prior to placing your order.

Our customers are as varied as the number of giraffes in existence. We have made a Giraffe Weathervane for the top of a carousel pavillion in Tennessee, as a birthday present for a Giraffe art collector, and for a safari-loving couple in Northern California. We also made a Giraffe vane to go atop a very tall giraffe barn in Texas.

Native to Africa, the giraffe is the tallest of all land-living animal species and beloved by people everywhere. The giraffe’s ‘gentle giant of nature’ stature makes it a wonderful character in countless children’s storybooks. With the largest physical heart of all creatures, the giraffe is recognized internationally as the iconic representation of kindness, and is often contrasted with another well known African species, the Jackal.

Other African Wildlife weathervanes offered by West Coast Weather Vanes include Elephants, Lions, Tigers, Rhinoceros, and a Hippopotamus.
