- Hand-formed hippopotamus sculpture
- Papier mâché base
- Wrapped in a patchwork of vintage sari fabric remnants
- Different fabric combinations ensure no two will be exactly the same
Our Vintage Sari Hippo Statue is handcrafted by Indian artisans who start with a base sculpture molded in papier mâché. They then carefully wrap the form in a hand-stitched patchwork of exquisite vintage sari remnants, creating a colorful, one-of-a-kind art piece.
Discouraging unnecessary waste, Indian artisans use reclaimed sari fabric remnants in a variety of artistic ways, such as wrapping this charming tabletop hippo sculpture. As each example is completely handmade, using a different combination of fabrics each time, your hippo is guaranteed to be unlike any other.
