A fan favorite among A Hundred Ravens’ customers.”This well-formed statuette of a hippopotamus (popularly called “William”) demonstrates the Egyptian artist’s appreciation for the natural world.

Beneath the blue-green glaze, the body was painted with the outlines of river plants, symbolizing the marshes in which the animal lived. ― The Metropolitan Museum of Art
