This is a copy of the Lion Killing a Snake statuette produced by Antoine-Louis Barye (1796-1875), the father and most prominent exponent of the animalier school in the 19th century. His figures of animals are true to life and at the same time imbued with a romantic and heroic spirit. The plaster composition Lion Killing a Snake was first exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1832. It was subsequently cast in bronze and became fashionably popular, later many times repeated in different materials and sizes. The ferocious power of the lion makes an inspiring image of impressive strength.
