Description

The Met's charming hippopotamus statuette (ca. 1961–1878 B.C.), molded in a ceramic material made of ground quartz, demonstrates the 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. Our whimsical tie celebrates this beloved figurine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely tie with delightful back story The silk "William" tie is both charming and beautiful, with a nice weight for serious work attire. I gave this to my young adult son in his Christmas stocking, to wear with a white cotton shirt with pale blue stripes, in another package. He liked that he had another office-day clothing choice handsomely covered, that the tie had a playful story, and that wearing it supports the MET.
