His name comes from the ancient Greek for “river horse” and it is an
apt description for this semi-aquatic mammal that, despite his ample
girth and stocky proportions, can still achieve speeds up to 19mph over
short distances. Herend’s artists have created the illusion that we are
seeing the hippopotamus in his beloved aquatic home by surrounding him
with gold water lilies that seem to glisten with moisture against the
hippo’s more subdued gray fishnet.
