Lion Hunt

This sculpture captures a hunting scene. The man on the horse reaches desperately to help his fallen comrade. The stricken man possibly fell from the horse during the frenzy of the hunt. Aimé Millet was a popular French painter and sculptor. The majority of his works are public statues, displayed throughout France.
