beaded wire art – hippo
The most underestimated member of the fabled Big Five African Animals.
The hippo is the king of the rivers throughout Africa. They may look docile lolling mostly submerged but they are ferociously territorial and can outrun a human on land. Hippos symbolize patience, emotional depth and great power. They remind us of the connection between earth and water—both necessary for life.
This wire art creation was done by a South African artist from Cape Town whose name is Beauty Moyo. Beauty’s exceptional skill as a bead artist captures the spirit of this fascinating animal.
