Denicheur d'Oursons statue by Emmanuel Fremiet in Paris
In this photo you can see the impressive details of the bears face that Emmanuel Fremiet managed to capture in this statue that he specifically produced for the Jardin des Plantes, and in fact, this artist took over from Antoine-Louis Barye as professor of animal drawing at the Natural History Museum in Paris.

The above HD photograph shows the impressive impact of this bronze wild animal statue within its surroundings, which was produced by Emmanuel Fremiet in 1885, and as you can tell, it is protected by a fence, but in an area where you can enjoy a lovely picnic at the park benches within the Jardin des Plantes.
The Bear Cub Thief by Emmanuel Fremiet
This view of the bronze statue in Paris shows the female bear gripping the man, who is depicted as a hunter that has just killed her bear cub, which you can also see in this image, and it has been sculpted as though the cub is being dragged by the hunter.

Here you can see a close up photo we took showing the dead bear cub being dragged by the man, and at the bottom right hand side of the statue you can see a name that states Denicheur d'Oursons, which generally translates in English to The Bear Cub Thief, and this impressive statue is designed to tell the story of a hunter that has killed a bear cub, and is now getting mauled by the mother.

Le Denicheur d'Oursons is an impressive statue that has a lot of meaning, and if you look very carefully at the neck of the bear, you will see there is a knife where the hunter has also tried to kill the mother bear after being attacked due to killing the bear cub, but it appears that the bear is winning the battle, especially with his jaw open and teeth showing ready to bite.

Le Denicheur d'Oursons, was just one of the animal statues that this artist produced and he became renowned for wild animal sculptures, even though he also produced Napoleonic statues as well, and Fremiet always gave each statue a specific name, just like this one of the Bear Cub Thief in the Jardin des Plantes.
