An antique bronze sculpture of a family of merino sheep by Jules Moigniez. This highly detailed bronze was first exhibited at the 1861 Salon in Paris. Not only has the sculptor created an attractive, well-balanced family group but he has detailed every curl of the wool and modelled an almost Barye-like series of folds in the loose skin and wool of the necks. The modelling of the foliage is excellent, A Moigniez trademark. In common with the accepted ideas of the period, Moigniez has put one of the sheep, in this case the proud ram, with his front feet on a rock, giving it added height and perspective. Signed J Moigniez.
