Bertha the Wooden Hippo – hand carved in South Africa!
Our beautiful large wooden hippo sculpture was hand made by the craftsmen of the Magaliesberg Mountain Range of South Africa.
Bertha the hippo is small enough to fit in any home, but large enough to make an impact, and she could be used as an impressive door stop! Bertha is approximately 40cm long and stands approximately 27cm tall!
Our beautiful Bertha has suffered some slight damage to her ear. You can see this in the photographs above and the price has been lowered to reflect this damage. In our opinion she is still a very impressive hippo!
Bertha the hippo is lovingly hand carved and polished to a beautiful deep red finish with darker patches. The hippo in the pictures is the one you will receive. Each of our wooden hippos is made with love and is unique.
We select only the finest quality wooden carvings from the best craftsmen of South Africa. You can be assured of the quality of this item and also that a fair price was paid to the skilled men and women that create these amazing sculptures.
Our products are made from wood found naturally in Southern Africa, and as with all wood there may be a few flaws – these are perfectly natural and none of which will take away from the beauty of the product. As with all wooden products our hippo sculptures require some care. Please see the ‘Caring for your Wooden Product’ section on our About page.
