He breaks into full stride as he closes in on his prey. His muscles flex as he pushes himself to the limit. This sculpture draws you in to the action and lets your imagination run wild as you join him on his chase as he runs across the wide open plains of the outdoors. This amazingly detailed sculpture portrays the Cheetahs stride beautifully as he transitions his paws and his weight while running. His facial expression shows calm, cool, and collected concentration while in pursuit.  A suiting soft brown patina highlights the muscles on the cheetah's legs, paws, & head. The head of the cheetahs is beautifully detailed right down the shape of the skull, jaw line, ears and facial structure. This bronze sculpture was casted using the "Lost was Method". This Sleek and Graceful piece is perfect for the wildlife lover in you.   This sculpture is signed by J. Moigniez.

 Jules Moigniez was born in Senlis sur L'Oise, France in 1835 and died in Saint-Martin-du-Teire, France on May 29, 1894.  The son of a metal gilder, Moigniez was a student of Paul Comolera.  He debuted at the Exposition Universelle in 1855 with Pointer and Pheasant and Falcon and Weasel each in plaster.  He contributed regularly to the Paris Salon from 1859 to 1892 during which he exhibited over thirty sculptures including Pointer and Pheasant and Falcon and Weasel in bronze. He was awarded an honorable mention at the Salon and received a medal in London at the Great Exposition in 1862. He lived most of his life in Paris. During his career he was widely popular in France, England and America. His bronzes were most decorative, particularly those of game birds.  He also sculpted dogs, farm animals and equestrian groups. Moigniez's dogs reflected the "naturalism" style of Pierre Jules Mene.  His bird sculptures were reminiscent of paintings by deHondecoeter, Casteels and Snyders. His sculptures of birds reflect dynamic movement, as if captured through a high-speed photographic portrait.      Moigniez bronzes were edited, (cast), by the foundry his father opened in 1857. A wide variety of patinations, including silver plate, golden bronze and gilding were unique to these lifetime casts.
