William, the Faience Hippo


Nuanced bright blue semi-solid fade

SKU: ME-WillHipp Categories: , , , , , , , , , ,

This well-formed statuette of a hippopotamus (popularly called William) demonstrates the Egyptian artist’s appreciation for the natural world. It was molded in faience, a ceramic material made of ground quartz. 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
