Giraffe

The Giraffe was carved from a tree that had been hit by lightning in the grounds of Todmorden High School and needed to be felled.

The tree was cut and lowered to the ground in one piece, and then inverted and carved into a Giraffe.

Hence the legs and tail of the Giraffe are formed from the branches of the tree, and the neck and head is carved out of the main tree trunk.
