Blue glazed earthenware hippo. The hippo is decorated with marsh plants and flowers symbolic of their habitat.  Figures like these have been found in countless Egyptian tombs, and they are thought to have been placed there to re-create a suitable environment for the gods of the afterlife. Hippos were identified with the Goddess Thoeris, who was thought to bring luck and protection, and with Seth, the god of storms.
