Barye's Lion and Tigre qui marche were both modelled circa 1840. The slight incline of the tiger's head to the right and the lion's to the left, as well as their complementary striding poses make the sculptures a fitting pair. The creatures' nascent snarls and rippling musculature call to mind Barye's more violent imaginings, such as Lion Dévorant une Gazelle and Tigre Terrassant une Biche. Here, the beasts are shown in a moment of relative calm, though their bared teeth suggest an imminent strike.
