Experience the fine artistry of the renowned French animal sculptor, Georges Gardet, with this exquisitely detailed representation of a tethered pig. A testament to Gardet's exceptional skill, the sculpture showcases the smooth, rounded contours of the pig's form, each element thoughtfully and delicately executed.

The medium-sized sculpture, measuring 24.5 x 17 and weighing 4.4 kg, effortlessly portrays the pig's endearing personality and character, illustrating Gardet's profound understanding and appreciation of the animal kingdom. This charismatic sculpture is a unique representation of Gardet's diverse range of subjects, ranging from beloved pets to formidable predators and even majestic elephants.

Born in 1863, Georges Gardet gained acclaim for his vivid, individualistic, and character-driven animal sculptures, holding a prominent place at the 1900 World's Fair where his imposing lions graced the Alexander III Bridge. Gardet's treatment of animals bares resemblance to the revered works of Barye, presenting a similar exploration of form, texture, and expression.

Embrace the chance to own a piece of artistic heritage from one of France's most influential animal sculptors.
