Harriet is a Medieval style miniature of a beautiful, Masai giraffe with whom I spent some time at Sand Diego Zoo a few years ago. She graciously posed for a number of photos on which I based the portrait. Getting her unique and characteristic spots correct was about as time consuming as all the filigree in the three pairs of earrings combined. Fortunately, I could work on her as I traveled and taught around the planet in 2017 and 201. As giraffes go, she was exceptionally portable.
