A cast stone statue to honor the hippo who captured the world’s hearts with her amazing story and unique personality.

Her dimensions are based on her actual size at birth, as reminder of her perseverance to fight and survive. Campania International, a top manufacturer in cast stone statuary is making and pouring statues, one by one, in the US with love and attention to detail. Due to the handmade nature and the use of natural stone, there can be slight variances in color.
