Hand-carved by master sculptor Emmanual Mabika, this gorgeous serpentine stone bird bath is a one-of-a-kind decorative piece for your home.

This carved hippo is beautiful! Very well made and a substantial piece. Well worth the price. Came carefully packaged in a huge box, delivery took maybe 3 days, if that; hats off to the Animal Rescue Site for the great packaging and UPS for the great delivery! I almost bought 2, as I knew I'd not want to put it outside if I liked it too much, and now I'm sorry I don't have 1 to put outside. Will have to get another one sometime soon, more food for those in need. What's not to love?
I bought this and was very impressed with how quickly it was delivered. The quality and workmanship is exceptional. A very beautiful work of art and functional, too.
