Hippo 150

Artist – Linda Saul

“King of the River”

Inspired by – When I got my hippo to decorate I was fiaxted by the big gaping jaw. Aware of the reputation the hippo has for attacking boats (of which I have personal experience) I had the idea of inserting a single scull rowing shell in the mouth. The red, white and blue bunting is a reference to the contribution that the Leander Club has made to the Team GB Olympic medal hauls. It was inspired by photos of the open top bus tour in Henley after the 2012 Olympics.
