Exclusive to the British Museum, a crochet kit inspired by ancient Egyptian blue faience hippos.

This charming craft kit includes yarn which is made from a blend of bamboo and cotton, a crochet hook and wadding to fill the finished model, as well as instructions.

The design of the crochet hippo is inspired by a blue earthenware hippo ornament from an ancient Egyptian tomb, now displayed in the British Museum. In ancient Egypt, hippos were associated with the goddess Taweret, and were believed to bring luck and protection. Blue faience hippos were often found in tombs as they were thought to serve as protective figures for the deceased’s journey through the River Nile and into the afterlife.

A fun and creative gift for a lover of ancient history.
