Animal: Hippopotamus, Material: Magnesite
This offering is sold.
Hippopotamuses are the third largest living land mammals. They are territorial especially in water, crocodiles don't even mess with them. At the same time we find them completely irresistible. Bryston Bowannie carved this wonderful baby hippo from magnesite and gave it the most adorable, if not slightly mischievous, smile. Turquoise eyes are set into a large head, which in nature, allows these water lovers to stay submerged but still able to see. This portion of magnesite is rich and varied. About 2 1/2" long, and 1 1/4" tall.
