Starting in the 30s, the Werkstatte Hagenauer produced objects with African backgrounds. In the 40s, these objects experienced a revival and for the first time, male African sculptures were displayed and the product range of animals was widened. This beautiful giraffe dates to the time around 1940. They show specific style elements of the Werkstatte Hagenauer in their dynamic pose and reduced shape. This is a typical example of the work of the Werkstatte Hagenauer in the 40s.
