This adorable Hippo brooch is based on Bibi, the mother of Fiona, the baby hippo born in Cincinnati Zoo in 2017.

$2 from the sale of this brooch will be donated to the African Wildlife Foundation whose mission is to ensure wildlife and wild lands thrive in modern Africa. For more information, visit

The brooch is 80mm W x 62mm H and is appoximately 3-6mm thick. It consists of 2 layers of stunning pink/mauve swirl acrylic with hints of gold glitter. Bibbi was hand drawn by myself from images of her and Fiona on the internet. She was then laser cut and etched in Sydney, and I have painted and assembled all her pieces by hand. A labour of love.

The brooch back is a silver plated locking pin.
The line on her neck has been etched/engraved my hand, so may vary from brooch to brooch.

**PLEASE NOTE** Marble, patterned and glitter acrylics can vary in colour, pattern and thickness. Not all brooches are identical, nor are they the same as the one pictured above.
