Description
Large Native American Navajo Folk Art Giraffe by Delbert Buck, measures 17.75''H x 8.5''W x 4.5''Deep, features Navajo Woman riding a Giraffe with her sheep riding backwards behind her, the giraffe is sporting eyeglasses, fabric skirt, embellished with wool, and embroidery thread, hand painted, FYI: ''Delbert Buck - Folk Artist: Delbert was born in Shiprock, New Mexico to Wilford and Jenny Buck in September of 1976. Like other Navajo folk artists, Delbert is self taught with the unusual distinction of starting at the ripe old age of nine. Delbert works in a shack behind his home. His tools are simple consisting of a hand saw, a hammer, and a utility knife. His mom lives near a wash so she picks up pieces of cottonwood for the carvings. Delbert handles the carving and the painting. His mom and sometimes, his sisters, help him ''dress'' the pieces, putting skirts on the women or wool to cover sheep.''
