The basic characteristics of this animal are very faithfully depicted, even if some elements are stressed and proportions changed, like the legs, elongated body or emphasized contour of the spine. The sculpture is modelled strongly, with powerful and expressive volumes, and divulges the author’s confidence and experience in his mature animalistic phase.
