Login Description:

BLUE HIPPOPOTAMUS METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART

This statuette of a hippopotamus (popularly called "William") was molded in faience, a ceramic material made of ground quartz. Beneath the blue glaze, the body was painted with lotuses. These river plants depict the marshes in which the animal lived, but at the same time their flowers also symbolize regeneration and rebirth as they close every night and open again in the morning.

The Pick-up for the lots from this Modern Downtown Seattle Condo is in LYNNWOOD
