La fable de la girafe

By AquaSixio


>>>>>> Limited Edtion Print ( numbered and signed by me ! ) : HERE<<<<<<<<

The fable of the moon and the giraffe:

Does anyone wonder why the moon has a crescent form?
The giraffe can't sleep because the moonlight keeps her awake!
Every month, she starts eating the moon.
She can't make short work of it, otherwise she might choke...
So, she nibbles pieces, drinking from the clouds sometimes.
After 14 days, the sky is entirely black.
So, the giraffe takes a nap.

Does anyone know why the moon comes back?
Neither the giraffe nor I know why

La fable de la girafe

Personne ne s’est demandé pourquoi la lune avait la forme d'un croissant ?

En fait, une girafe, gênée par la lumière de la lune, ne pouvait pas dormir.

Et chaque mois, la même histoire, la girafe recommençait à manger la lune,

Mais elle ne pouvait pas en faire une une seule bouchée et risquer de s’étouffer...

Alors, elle grignotait des petits morceaux, en buvant quelques nuages au passage,

Après 14 nuits de ce dur labeur, le ciel était totalement noir.

Alors, la girafe pouvait dormir, enfin.

Personne ne saurait pourquoi la lune revient plus tard ?

Ni la girafe ni moi pouvons le dire…

I love all of your paintings, but I think this will always be my favorite one. I love this story, and this painting makes me feel something I can't explain. I love it so much, I have loved it for years!

I still have this print in my bedroom. You had a different signature then. It was just "Sixio" in the bottom right corner. Your work continues to floor me. 
Hi AquaSixio!

I am a huge fan of giraffes. I would like to purchase the right to use this image for a custom laptop skin for my 17" laptop. Could we talk?

Thank you for this piece of art -- it is my new favorite!
