Curiosities


Micaela has been collecting hippopotamus all her life. She owns more than 6.000 examples, from the very simple in wood, glass, ceramic etc. to the “important” ones in silver and semiprecious stones.
Her dream was to have a “real” one but living in a cosmopolitan environment made this impossible so, she breads Shar-pei, the chinese wrinkle dog, that are almost miniatures hippopotamus.
The jewels she wears (each one unique and not for sale) are of course only hippos designed by her and specially made by a local artisan.
This passion, nearly an obsession, began in Argentina when she was very little and was taken to see Walt Disney’s “Fantasia”. She was captivated by “the dance of the hours” performed by hippopotamuses dressed in pink tutoos.
