The sculpture depicts a hippo that is trying to balance itself delicately on a chair with a pear. It is a beautiful representation of endangered species and the difficulties they face in balancing safely and living within the ecosystem. The hippo's balance represents the fragility of the natural balance and ecosystem, and how the slightest thing can make all the difference on whether species survive and thrive or not. The pear, a delicious fruit that we often take for granted represents the human impact on the environment and the expanding farming or urban habitat at the expense of wildlife habitats. The sculpture is a reminder that humans are responsible for protecting endangered species like hippos, or else their delicate balancing act in nature will have dire consequences.
