Description
This sculpture of a tiny, baby hippo sitting in a big armchair symbolizes the vulnerability and innocence of young life. While a hippo is a powerful, mighty animal that can be daunting to others creating a beautiful contradiction. The size difference between the chair and the baby hippo impresses upon viewer an overwhelming and unforgettable sense of the baby hippo's smallness in relation to the rest of the world, accentuating the remarkable contrast between delicate rhinos and adult domination. The armchair is significant; it represents the comfort, safety, and warmth for newborns that they need and value. However, this particular sculpture can also be interpreted as a poignant message regarding the harsh reality faced by hippos and other endangered animals in their fight for survival amidst the ever-looming human presence and habitat loss. Overall, the sculpture provides a comforting and powerful message that invites humans to empathize, support remote conservation work, and protects the endangered species.
