"Floating Hippos" is the most unique, awe-striking piece in our collection. It is sure to spark a conversation in your home or office. Its flat bottom creates the illusion of hippos floating in a pond, while the top of the piece depicts whimsical and realistic details of the top of the hippos (head peering out). "Floating Hippos" is hand carved in Kenya, Africa. No factories or machinery was involved in the production process, only artisans and hand tools with painstaking detail and precision. This piece is made out of natural ebony wood and is free from any dyes, stains, or varnishes. There is ONLY ONE piece available for one lucky customer.
