Description
This small and charming figurine of an animal leaping into action may once have been part of a small sculptural group, or an attachment on a bronze vessel. His face is particularly animated, his eyes and mouth wide in fear of whatever he is leaping away from. The sculptor’s attention to detail also extends to the surface of the animal, with a suggestion of fur being created by the small indentations covering his body. Even though he is not fully preserved, this figurine is delightful. - (LK.117)
