Hippolotovus V1&V2
Version 1 Version 2
Hippolotovus

Cocaine and hippos – what is the link? The connection is that notorious pharmaceutical salesman, Pablo Escobar. Having accrued the sort of fortune that would make a Premier League footballer hide in shame, he decided to build a zoo at his Columbian mansion home. He ‘imported’ (smuggled!) four hippos in the late 1970s to add to his collection. After his death in 1993, the animals went to other zoos, but the hippos were released into the wild – and having no predators, flourished in the South American jungle and the rise of the so-called ‘cocaine hippos’ began. Now it is estimated there are between 80 and 120 and there are debates about what to do with this invasive species. Birth control is too expensive and culling would upset the locals who like having hippos. A slightly odd dilemma for conservation! In my piece the hippos are also having the last laugh enjoying the fruits of Mr Escobar’s ‘labour’. Carved around the lid are ‘Hacienda Napoles’, the name of Mr Escobar’s mansion, Pablo and Pepe (hippos) and 4/120 for the original and current numbers. I struggled to choose a colour for this piece so we asked our collectors to select their favourite – it was an even split, so there are two colour variations on this piece with 300 produced of each colour.

2012 Harmony Kingdom Announcement
 
After nearly 20 years, Noel and Lisa are handing over the Harmony Kingdom reins to the one person who has their complete trust and admiration – Peter Calvesbert. Back in 1990, Peter and Martin started what would become a booming box figurine craze. When they became acquainted with them in 1994, it was Peter's extraordinary talent that inspired them to create Harmony Kingdom. And over two decades, Peter has never once let them down. They will very much miss working with him, but they know that he, and his wife Andrea, will steward the collection with the utmost care and creativity, and they so look forward to seeing the interesting directions they take.

HK House of Peers Clubs

To associate with other like-minded people in small, purposeful groups is for the great majority of men and women a source of profound psychological satisfaction. Exclusiveness will add to the pleasure of being several, but at one; and secrecy will intensify it almost to ecstasy.
— Aldous Huxley

Harmony Kingdom's authorized independent clubs aren't secret societies, but they are a source of great pleasure and sometimes even ecstasy for fans of Harmony Kingdom. Each club is organized and run by individual collectors and, as such, are all unique. Yet they do have one thing in common—members are all fascinated by Harmony Kingdom box figurines and enjoy discovering their hidden secrets. In addition to a shared interest in Harmony Kingdom, the clubs are deeply involved in charitable activities and many provide informative newsletters and organize fun social events. Each authorized independent club elects a delegate to the HK House of Peers—the central council that acts as liaison between the independent clubs and Harmony Kingdom.

Please check the listing for the club nearest you. Many clubs accept members from out-of-state and offer long-distance benefits. Or you may decide to form your own independent club. Guidelines for receiving official sanctioning from Harmony Kingdom are listed under Independent Club Guidelines.

Harmony Kingdom's authorized independent clubs are a great way to meet like-minded folks, develop friendship participate in meaningful charitable activities, receive special offers, invitations and pieces, and have some fun. Join today!
