Small South African Wooden Hippo – Reduced!
Our beautiful small wooden hippo sculptures were hand made by the craftsmen of the Magaliesberg Mountain Range of South Africa.
Each hippo has a flaw, a sympathetically mended broken leg or a particularly distinctive wood mark, and this is reflected in the price. The flaws are shown in the photos of each hippo, and the hippo in the photo of your selection is the one that you will receive.
These small wooden hippos would fit into any home and could be used as a book end or simply to look good on your mantelpiece! These hippos are approximately 20cm long and weigh around 0.7kg each.
The hippo is lovingly carved from African Teak wood, and then hand polished to a beautiful deep orange finish. As each one is individually carved and finished, yours could look slightly different from the picture. Each small wooden hippo 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.
