The hippopotamus is a strong symbol, one that teaches us courage + calmness in the midst of adversity. While the image of a charging hippo is anything but calm, their “resting” state is one of complete alertness.
Our smallest hippos, sold in sets of 6 different colors, are a fair trade product handmade in Kenya. They are hand carved out of stone, sanded, dyed, and then etched, all using simple hand tools.
Each hippo is approximately 1.5 inches long and 1 inch tall.
