The hippo, also known as the Kiboko in Swahili, is one of the larger African animals in the range and needs some planning when debating a location. Representing the size of a real life hippopotamus, its wrinkly neck, pricked up ears and hairy snout are all expertly portrayed through various metals and welding techniques. The hippo inhabits wild rivers in Africa, and so looks especially eccentric when placed next to bodies of water, whether that be on the edge of an indoor swimming pool at home or about to lazily slide into a lake at the bottom of the garden.

All sculptures are beautifully handcrafted by our team of artists in Kenya. Each piece is made from recycled metal using oil drums and car parts. The sculpting process begins when a wire framework is created. Selected pieces of metal are then welded to the frame to build up the sculpture. The completed sculptures are hand finished in the UK using a lacquer. Sculptures are lacquered to protect them from the environment if placed outside. The lacquer applied will give the product and extended product life of between 9-12 months depending on weather conditions.

  • Box Dimensions: H 152.4 x W 100 x D 340 cm
Please Note: If a sculpture is going to be placed outdoors, regular care and maintenance is necessary to retain the original finish. Lacquer used on the sculptures is available to purchase from Pangea Sculptures in store or online. Pangea Sculptures does not recommend that any sculpture should be sat in water. It is the member's responsibility to maintain the finish on the sculpture. Ground fixings can be purchased from Pangea Sculptures should you decide to locate your sculpture outdoors and require such fixings. Please contact https://pangeasculptures.com/
 
Sculptures are designed as ornamental features and not as toys and so are not suitable for riding or climbing on. Sculptures are not recommended for children as they may have sharp parts such as tusks, horns, teeth, and claws. We recommend that children are supervised around a sculpture at all times.
