Moigniez was a master at portraying birds and their natural lives. In this sculpture, he shows a cock Pheasant as he walks along looking for food, relaxed yet alert to danger.

This smaller model is not often found, it is a little gem. The bronze is sharply cast with fine details, you can see all the lines in the feathers, and a gleam in the Pheasant's eyes. It has a wonderful gilt patina.
