Comment

  • Museum's website, July 19, 2011:
    The stag stands on three feet with its mouth open. One hound has climbed upon the stag's back and bites his ear. Another hound, lying on its proper right side, bites the front proper left leg of the stag. A third hound, whose body is partially obscured beneath that of the stag, bites the proper front right leg of the stag. All three hounds wear collars with buckles and have long, curled tails. There is one crack in the proper right antler of the stag. The sculpture is bolted and sautered to the base.
