The Flying Hippo Maquette
My Flying Hippo is a medium sized maquette in cast bronze. Female Hippo is swimming gracefully through the air, weightless as if immersed in water.
Size; L/B/h 64/51/80cm in a patinated stainless steel box; 40/40/10cm
My choice of patina, a deep ferric red to purple resembles their natural colour while emphasizing volume with greens, yellows to turquoise in the dark recesses.
In anticipation of a large Flying Hippopotamus, watch this space…
This maquette is currently available in the studio;
