  • This bronze statue is located at n ° 40 Rue Geoffroy Saint Hilaire, near the winter greenhouse of the National Museum of natural history. She represents a man, a bear Hunter to domesticate them. He is struggling with a mother bear who, standing on her hind legs, mouth open, defends her child and attacks the Scout. The blindfolded muscles, the Scout, who wears a simple loincloth, fights against the huge Oursonne. This statue, of a striking realism, is the work of Emmanuel Frémiet (1824-1910), one of the greatest romantic animal sculptors of the nineteenth century. This work is fortunate to be highlighted by the fact that it is in the midst of abundant vegetation, which gives it more realism! This work was commissioned by the Ministry of public education and fine arts in 1884. It may be noted that, at that time, public education is associated with "Beaux Arts", which is unfortunately no longer the case today. Other times, other priorities!!!
