"A Hippopotamus for the Day after Christmas"

There's that cute song, "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas", in which a charming girl sings of her desires. I'm a little late for Christmas, but better late then never!

Faience hippopotamus seen at Brooklyn Museum. (Too bad, I misspelled 'Hippopotamus'! Sorry!)
I visited the Brooklyn Museum May, 2008

While it is too late for my sketchbook, I created a digital salvage!
(December 26, 2015 - Exactly four years later!)
