The sculpture titled "Poacher," created by the French artist Emile Louis Truffot (1843-1896), stands as a testament to his mastery in the art of bronze sculpting. Depicting a fox and pheasant, this beautiful bronze figure is mounted on a marble base and measures 10 inches in height. The sculpture is inscribed with E. Truffot and adorned with a dark brown patina, showcasing the artist's attention to detail and commitment to quality. Born in Valenciennes, Truffot studied sculpture at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, exhibited at the Salon from 1863, and earned the prestigious Prix de Rome in 1867/68.

Crafted using the Genuine Pure Bronze - Lost Wax Process (Cire Perdue), this sculpture is a result of a method that captures the most minute details of the artist's original work. The lost wax process, from clay to wax to bronze, is a time-honored technique that transforms a sculpture made of soft clay into a more durable material like bronze. The sculpture reflects Truffot's dedication to quality, fidelity, and detail, staying true to the practices of old-world masters. With a dark brown patina, the piece exudes a timeless elegance that enhances its overall aesthetic.

Hailing from Europe and certified as pure bronze, this sculpture is a part of a tradition that sets the standard in hand-cast bronzes through the superior Lost Wax Process. The process allows for the faithful reproduction of the original object, making it a preferred method for casting bronze sculptures in the world's finest museums, galleries, and premier collections. As an art form, this sculpture not only pays homage to Truffot's artistic prowess but also reflects the enduring appeal of bronze as a medium for capturing the beauty of nature and wildlife.
