African Beaded Hippo

$ 16.00

These happy beaded hippos are made from recycled wire and beads, all hand twisted and strung by self-taught artist Godfrey and his team in the Salt River suburb of Cape Town, South Africa.

As in real life, each animal has its own personality! The hippos are approximately 3" - 4" tall. And as they are handmade, no two are the same. Wooly and herbivorous, these little hippos have traveled a long way to tell you their story.

As each animal is hand beaded and unique, the color of beads you receive may be different than what is photographed.
