This piece is extremely lifelike and the craftsmanship and attention to detail are absolutely fantastic.

It was cast by the 'lost wax' or 'cire perdue' process.

Hippolyte Peyrol (1856-1929)

was a student of Antoine-Louis Barye and started his foundry at 14 Rue de Crussol in Paris where he became the primary caster of works for artists in the family. He married Juliette Bonheur, sister of Isidore and Rosa Bonheur and had a son, Francois Auguste Hippolyte Peyrol, born in 1856. Francois studied under Isidore Bonheur as well as Tabard and Frenne, first exhibiting at Salon in 1880. He was awarded honourable mention at the Salon des Artistes Francais in 1883, 1886 and 1892, achieving a second-class metal in 1892 and first class in 1894. In 1908 he was awarded the Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur. Much of his work was focused around animal subjects.

Cire Perdue

Sometimes called by the French name of 'cire perdue' or the Latin, 'cera perduta' is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artist's sculpture.In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
