Cranbrook Academy has confirmed that founder George G. Booth bought this condor directly from Edgar Brandt while traveling in Paris in 1929. This majestic sculpture was designed to be realized in different media, and examples are known in bronze, plaster and black marble. However, as Félix Marcilhac states in his catalogue raisonné, it appears that only one example of this model was ever created in granite.
