A fantastic Shona sculpture of a hippo head. This piece has been hand carved from Serpentine stone. The high polished finish is accomplished by sanding the stone all the way up to 2000 grade sandpaper. This takes hours of patience but the effect is delightful. This sculpture is extremely tactile with a wonderful polished finish it is quite delightful. A wonderful sculpture for any Hippo collector.
