The little hippopotamus pot combines elements of both the statuettes and votive bowls. Although it is a vessel and not a true statuette, the pot has the form of the hippopotamus carved in relief in such a way that the image stretches over the surface image of a tilapia fish, an image commonly found on both statuettes and bowls.
