In some cases, as with this piece, artisans also apply paint.

Hippos are my favorite animal, so a very good friend gifted me one of these for Christmas this year. She's the cutest! I can't wait to take her to work so I can look at her every day.

Artrageous would be a better title - just adorable!

My larger Kenya Hippo has a baby now. I just adore my hippos. I also bought several of the larger Hippos for gifts - and know I will buy more of the babies, too. Each little baby hippo I have seen is different - such great fun! My "Grand Niece" likes to play with the hippo I bought for my brother, so I am buying a small hippo for her (for Christmas --- as she sang a song for me "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" - so she shall get one).
