Why is it Special?
Hibo captures the nature of hippos in a simple and lovable sculpture made from solid oak. With the deep black eyes, Hibo has a vivid look. The expression of hippopotamus can change as the head can be tilted to either side giving Hibo a charming and wondering look on its face. On its own or together with its family, Hibo will bring enjoyment to any room it enters. Hibo builds upon an old tradition among Danish architects and designers to make expressive wooden sculptures.
