François-Xavier Lalanne (1927–2008) was a French renowned sculptor acclaimed for his surreal animal sculptures. He, individually and together with his wife Claude Dupeux, created a range of surrealistic sculptures that featured animals like rhinos, crocodiles, and sheep. Lalanne, during his lifetime, made many metal hippopotamus figures that featured built-in compartments. Pictured above is the Lalanne Hippo that transforms into a complete bar.
