The present bronze is an early reduction of a famous marble, once in the gardens of Marly, carved by Nicolas Coustou in 1710. Bronze versions of Coustou's marble were commissioned to furnish the Parisian apartments of Louis XIV’s courtiers, where the decorative value of a sculpture evoking a golden age of bucolic myth was celebrated.

The present cast is by Jean-Claude Chambellan Duplessis, better known for his porcelain designs for Vincennes and Sèvres. Most of the shapes from the 1750s, and many from the 1760s, are attributed to Duplessis, or bear his name. In 1751, he was commissioned by Louis XV to produce drawings for the first major dinner-service. In 1758, he was designated Orfèvre du Roi.
