Hippo - Birthright for Greatness, Original Mixed Media Art 11x14"

Hippo - Birthright for Greatness, Original Mixed Media Art 11x14"

Regular price $400.00

I was inspired to paint a hippo because of its size. Second in size only to the elephant (or maybe the rhinoceros), the sheer size of this animal is boggling. Weighing in at around 4 tons, the size implies big potential, big growth, and big power in cultural symbolism. 

The current political events have been zapping me of my power, and I wanted to come forward with a very large animal to counteract that. Moreover, the hippo spends much of its time in the water where the water makes it feel lighter and dynamic.

Consider the symbolism of that. We are all big. We are all bold. We are all great. It’s true. We are all born to be dynamic. We are all born to expand and succeed. It’s the process of growing up, being socialized, taking a few hard knocks in life that beats the bigness out of us.

Hippo reminds us of our birthright for greatness.

When hippo shows up in our life, it may be a sign that we need to defend our dreams and emotions. The hippo suggests a message of standing up for our territory in terms of dreams, goals, creative ambitions.

Since she is painted on gallery wrapped canvas, you will be able to take her out of the box and hang her up immediately. No framing required!
