This 2.5" L X 2" H cold cast resin hippo statue is a great addition to an altar. The goddess Taweret, portrayed as a bipedal hippopotamus with limbs like those of a feline. She stands for protection & lifesaver. Hippos lived in the Nile River, the source of life, so they, too, were associated with life. They often submerge in water for several minutes, surface to breathe, then sink again; this behavior of disappearing and reappearing was associated with regeneration and rebirth.
