This is a hot cast bronze sculpture of a Hippo and bird in symbiosis.
Hippopotamuses are often seen with birds on their back and this sculpture depicts the symbiosis of the two animals perfectly.
The Hippo offers the bird protection and in return is kept clean from parasites by the bird. Both benefit in kind.
This is a really impressive bronze sculpture of some size and stature. The Hippo is freestanding and very finely detailed. Museum Quality.
