Punu Rii | Rothschild’s Giraffe for TUSK
Grant Macdonald Silversmiths are proud to support the work of the charity Tusk whose patron is HRH The Prince of Wales. Tusk is a dynamic and pioneering organisation with over twenty five years of initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa.
Named after the city in Uganda where one of the last Rothschild’s giraffe habitats exists, ‘Punu Rii’ is hand crafted in sterling silver and 24 carat gold plate with hand painted lacquer ‘spots’ to bring this piece to life.
Whilst all giraffes are now classified as endangered species, the Rothschild’s Giraffe is extremely special - the most endangered species of giraffe on the planet, with a population of less than 2,500. Threatened by habitat loss and poaching, Tusk has helped to reintroduce these elegant herbivores to parts of their former range in Kenya, and is working to restore the habitat and wildlife in Murchison Falls National Park, which is home to a large population of around 900 Rothchild’s giraffes.
This collection of animals is handmade from sterling silver, the detailing is what brings these unique masterpieces to life.
