Here we have a lively sculpture of 3 Chicks chasing after a large Grasshopper Insect. The hungry Chicks are all after the insect which is almost as large as they are. One Chick has knocked another Chick over in the rush to grab the prize!

A rare model with superb detail and great action, this bronze was cast by Jules Moigniez in his father's foundry. It has a gold gilt patina and is in perfect condition with no damage. The large Insect is a Grasshopper with all its legs and antenna intact. A wonderful piece!
