Description
Sculpture, Hunting scene - Alloy - Second half 19th century
Germany

Metal alloy. Metal has a rather thick coating with craquelure which gives a nicely lived effect.
On his waist he carries a fox’s head as an image.
The prey in his hand seems to have two broken off horns.
The dogs are clearly hunting dogs and the man lifts a stick to one of those who shows a defensive attitude.
Beautiful decorative Image, although the image may not be too popular.
The two dogs are separately cast and attached with screws. The man and the animal in his hand are cast in one piece. The bat in the hand of the man is also cast separately.
