Spirit of Hippo

 

Original has sold.  Select prints can be purchased here.  Hippos are very connected to lakes and rivers. They spend hours upon hours submerged in water which keeps their skin cool and protected from the African sun. With their eyes and nostrils located high atop their head, they are able to see and hear everything that is happening around them while the rest of their body is underwater.

Spirit of Hippo symbolizes strength, protection and self preservation. She teaches that there is more to who you are than meets the eye and that what’s underneath the surface is a powerful force that can conquer any task you choose to accept. Be strong; be surprising to others with your fearlessness – Be Like Hippo.
