Description

Our eye-catching bookends were inspired by "William," The Met's charming hippopotamus statuette (ca. 1961–1878 B.C.). The original figurine was molded in a ceramic material made of ground quartz, and demonstrates the ancient Egyptian artist's appreciation for the natural world. Beneath the blue-green glaze, the body was painted with the outlines of river plants, symbolizing the marshes in which the animal lived. Since its arrival at The Met in 1917, William has been a visitor favorite.
