Here are two more currently on ebay. One from Switzerland (uh,oh), one from Tokyo. I think both are nice enough pieces but are they "fakes" based on age and origin descriptions and their claim of authenticity.?

I would say fake X 2. Have to love the description "wood Giraff" though.

Yes, the first clue! Why would they say that and ask over $1,000?
They would both be ok if they described them as modern, but then, I suppose, there would be little chance of selling for much money.
I might be inclined to bid if they were labelled properly just to help out modern artists.

I think this "artist" needs more help than your money.
