This recent design has proved to be very popular. Standing firmly on all four feet, with his cheeky half smile, ‘Hippo The Lad’ appeals to the whole family. "The Lad" is a hardy hippo with a lot of character. He is a single standing hippo with his head tilted to one side and a wry smile on his face.
The patina simulates hippo hide exceptionally well and the detail is indeed impressive. The glass which represents the water surface integrates particularly well in this sculpture as the Hippo surfaces.
