Hilde Robbestad Anfindsen

Here is my giraffe. He is machine quilted with different textiles/layers such as tuille and self printed skin pattern.

My inspiration was a giraffe baby who was born in an animal park in Norway, and ended up dying because he would not eat.

His picture in the papers took me by heart and I wanted to make him immortal…

The animal caretakers did not want to give him a name, so I would name him "Haiti"
