Love from Below (Baby Hippo and Mother) - Giclée Print

In stock

Based on a 1968 original.

C'mon, it's time to meet the neighbors, Mama hippo snorts. Her baby clambers onto mother's big back for the ride. Eye to eye with a Nile crocodile, the cute calf craves play—licking and chewing on the croc like a teething ring—while Mama's massive midriff offers maximum parental support. The little hippo couldn't risk a play date alone—only in Mater's presence. In an instant, should fun turn to run, Baby hippo can depend on Mama to rise up to her defense. After all, every Mom's love looms large—in this case, VERY large.

-Charley Harper

In early 2017, Fiona the hippo was born at the Cincinnati zoo, and she would sometimes climb atop her mother, Bibi, as if to imitate this painting.
