Catalogue Note

Animal sculpture was Sandoz's preferred theme. He depicted animals in a naturalistic way, focusing either on the decorative aspects or on the scientific representation. This beautiful bronze combines both choices.

Tierskulpturen sind Sandoz's liebstes Thema. Er stellt Tiere in einer naturalistischen Art dar, entweder auf die dekorativen Aspekte fokussierend oder auf die wissenschaftliche Darstellung. Diese wunderschöne Skulptur verbindet beide Arten.
