About This Project

The Detroit Zoo contacted Prop Art Studio to create a life size replica of their oldest male giraffe “Jabari”. The location of the prop would be in the hallway leading into their winter barn. The idea behind the replica is to let the public see and feel up close how big and powerful this animal really is. The other benefit to having a life size replica is kids will be less likely to mess with the real animals by yelling at them or banging on the glass.
