Une girafe de ruban

How much is that giraffe in the window?

Made of ribbons, he stands proudly in the showroom window (SHINDO).
No photos allowed, but I am standing on the street.

bon weekend

Hello Genie:
How imaginative and, at first glance, realistic is this! Very well spotted!

With a disco ball no less!

Wow. What a show stopper of a window display. I really admire the creativity and dedication which went into its design and construction. Very impressive.

On peut en faire des choses avec des rubans !

I imagine it was difficult to make this art, but the result is wonderful. The giraffe has white paws so cute!

Bibi said...

Really beautiful and creative. I don't like that 'no photo' thing either...

Malyss said...

Impressive work!

JoeinVegas said...

Yes, photos through the windows are OK.

Starman said...

Very well made. I wonder how long it took the artist to create it?

Mary said...

He's fabulous! I WANT him. lol

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Yes, the animals are made of ribbons, this large giraffe made of gros-grain ribbon. It is a bit of a permanent installation as Vreni just saw (and photographed) this recently. My photo was taken in January 2012.

Starman, I would think that it was a major project with participation by more than one artist/creator

Duncan, giraffes are a favorite of mine as well.

I think that the addition of the "disco balls" is just fine.

I am touched by your compliment, although I am sure other artists have used the same techniques, but it was so kind of you to say so.
Thank you so much Genie. Your visits are always a joy to me.

Wouldn't you think Genie, that if the artists went to all that work of creating something like this, that they would love for people to take photo's...Very nice piece of 'bow work'!

Sylvia K said...

Beautiful!! Love your capture! I, too, wonder if the artists who have gone to so much work wouldn't be happy to have the efforts recognized and enjoy seeing people taking photos!! But whatever, they're delightful! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend, Genie!

Fantastic, Genie.

On se demande bien pourquoi la photo est interdite. La peur d'être copié ? Foutaise, allez copier cela !

Rubans de Paris, fart de la mode !

En Namibie, j'ai photographié de grands animaux du pays, travaillés en de minuscules perles. Un travail de titan.
Je ferais paraître bientôt mon voyage en Namibie sur un de mes blogs.
