The Hippo Rider is a beautiful addition to Ardmore's Rider series. Sculptor Alex Sibanda has dran inspiration from traditional Zulu attire and Herd Boys and conjured an exquisite creation of a roaring Hippo and its masked rider as well as his monkey companion. There are a multitude of details to feast the eye, including the addition of a Hippo atop the riders' parasol.
Wiseman Mpofu has taken the expression and tension that masterful Alex has sculpted and added to it with his phenomenal brushwork. The artists employs all his skill to embody the Hippo's fierce expression, which is then coupled with intricate design work on the saddle cloth.
The Hippo rider is a truly calssic Ardmore work of Art.
