Martha the Massive Wooden Hippo – hand carved in South Africa!
Our massive wooden hippo sculpture was hand made by the craftsmen of the Magaliesberg Mountain Range of South Africa.
Martha the hippo is a very large hippo, but would still be small enough to fit in any home! She will make an impact wherever she finds a home, but she could be used as a very impressive door stop! She is approximately 48cm long and stands approximately 30cm tall!
Our beautiful Martha has suffered some slight damage to her foot which has been carefully mended. You can see this in the photographs above and the price has been lowered to reflect this. In our opinion this does not detract from her in any way!
Martha 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.
