The State commissioned Félix Sanzel (1829-1883), from this work in 1867, after the plaster test, exhibited at the Salon 1861, has achieved great success.

Created in 1868, it is due to the Parisian sculptor Félix Sanzel, who died in his hometown in 1883. This sculpture seems curious. The expression of the face of the child displays a dread because it seems to be trapped by a fauna leaning on him with a disturbing smile....
