HippopoThames

“HippopoThames” by Florentijn Hofman, 2014
River Thames, Vauxhall Bridge
London, September 2014

“It has been home to dolphins, piranha fish and even blood-sucking eels, but the River Thames has never before seen the like of this giant hippo. City workers and tourists had to double take yesterday morning when the 68-foot wooden animal floated up London's famous river. The huge sculpture - named HippopoThames - is a new art installation for the capital by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman.”
