Huntsman and Dogs

The title of my post tonight is Huntsman and Dogs. The pictures in the post are all of a sculpture in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney. I will mostly let the pictures speak for themselves and keep the text to a minimum.Huntsman and Dogs, Royal Botanic Gardens, Henri Jacquemart, Sculpture, BronzeThe Huntsman and Dogs sculpture is the work of Henri Alfred Marie Jacquemart who was a French sculptor.Huntsman and Dogs, Royal Botanic Gardens, Henri Jacquemart, Sculpture, BronzeThis sculpture of a huntsman and his two dogs was completed in 1866. Huntsman and Dogs, Royal Botanic Gardens, Henri Jacquemart, Sculpture, BronzeThere is a lot of detail in this sculpture, especially in the two dogs.

Jacquemart is best know for his large animal sculptures so I can understand why the dogs are very detailed.Huntsman and Dogs, Royal Botanic Gardens, Henri Jacquemart, Sculpture, BronzeThe sculpture looks great from different angles, and I tried to capture as many as I could.Huntsman and Dogs, Royal Botanic Gardens, Henri Jacquemart, Sculpture, BronzeI really enjoyed wandering through the Royal Botanic Gardens and seeing the many sculptures that were among the flowers and trees.

This one was one of my favorites.
