Painted acrylic on the canvas, than cut up bark from the inner bark of a wild fig tree for the shape of the giraffe, than used amate circulous marble paper for the mane and than painted it. A natural paper handmade by the Otomi artisans using the same methods that Mesoamerican ancestors used 3000 years ago. Adding Kinwashi rice paper to finish the design and create more surface interest. We must all STAND TALL to make it through this year of the pandemic.
