Deadline to order: Friday, Feb. 28, 2020
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is pleased to offer these limited-edition solid bronze memorial miniatures to commemorate the impactful but all-too-brief life of Penny, the giraffe calf.
- These custom-made miniatures were designed by Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s in-house artist, Antonia Chastain, with input from the keepers who worked with Penny every day, to capture Penny’s unique characteristics. Those who knew Penny well will recognize her tilted right ossicone and her quirky “forked” tail.
- These miniatures closely mimic the life-sized bronze statue of Penny that is planned for installation near the CMZoo giraffe barn in Summer 2020.
- We chose to make the miniatures of bronze, as well, to preserve the uniqueness of the piece and provide a lasting memento that can be cherished.
- These miniatures will only be available to order for a limited time and are being produced on-demand.
- The bronze figurines will be shipped approximately 12 to 15 weeks after you place your order. (Figurines are being hand-forged based on actual orders. Turnaround times are contingent upon the final number of figurines ordered and the capacity of the foundry. Timing for shipping is subject to change.)
