When I was at the National Museum of Ireland Archaeology, this Hippopotamus made himself known as soon as you walked by. The feirsome teeth, the yellowed bones, the glass roof overhead. It all came together in a strange mix of victorian elegance, and everpresent death. The museum has an incredible collection of Victorian era taxidermy that included the extinct Tasmanian Wolf, Giraffes, Hippopotami, and Giant Irish Deer. Animals reaching out from the path, given new life in the halls of the museum.
