Indian Mounted on an Elephant Crushing a Tiger


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Mounted by an Indian driver wearing a headdress similar to that of the driver on the duke of Orléans's "Tiger Hunt" (Walters 27.176), this elephant uses his head and enormous forefoot to crush a tiger. Although the hunt groups from the Duc d'Orleans' table centerpiece were intended to be unique, Barye, as in this instance, produced variations of the subjects.
