Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue by sculptor Auguste Cain
This first HD photo shows the statue called the Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier, which in English translates to the Lion and Lioness Fighting Over a Boar, and as you can tell, this sculpture is a very realistic interpretation of exactly what could happen in the wild.
Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue on base
Yet this next image shows the entire monumental statue that was produced in bronze sitting on top of its large pedestal base, which we took while we were looking at it from the front and within the Tuileries Gardens.
Lions head on Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue
However, this close up photograph shows the lion holding the young boars leg in his jaws, with his paw and claws protruding on the lionesses trying to stop her getting to the kill, and the detailing that went into producing the Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue, makes it feel that these wild animals could spring to life.
Lionesses head on Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue
But this very close up HD photo shows the lionesses head as though she is roaring or ready to attack, and this particular view can only be captured if you are looking at the Lion and Lioness Fighting Over a Boar bronze statue from the back and underneath the lion.
Back of Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier
And here you can see the entire bronze statue from the back looking into the Jardin des Tuileries from the north terrace, which was sculpted by the famous animalier sculptor Auguste Nicolas Cain who was classed as one of the best French animal sculptors of his time.

You will find that wild animals especially lions and tigers were a subject that fascinated most people, with many never being able to see one in the wild, and Auguste Cain always strived to make his sculptures as realistic as possible, even though some are now classed as barbaric or not appropriate due to the hunting style scenes portrayed.
Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue along Terrasse des Feuillants
Although, statues such as this one of Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier and the one on the opposite side of the steps in the distance called Rhinoceros Attaque par un Tigre, which was also sculpted by Auguste Nicolas Cain, are a part of French heritage that have become popular tourist attractions in their own right.
A Cain inscription on Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue
Yet this next image shows a close up of where the name of the sculptor has been etched into the bronze, which is positioned right by the base of the statue just below the young boar, and some sources state that Auguste Cain was born in 1822, although others including what is on the plaque state he was born in Paris in 1821.

Auguste Nicolas Cain studied under the French sculptor Francois Rude, but also under Pierre Jules Mene who also ran a foundry, and Auguste Cain ended up marrying his daughter and taking over the foundry when Mene died, which also helped Cain to be able to produce different statues and sculptures.

But initially Auguste Cain started out designing and producing small items and decorative art pieces for items like paper weights and walking sticks, yet having studied the animals at another popular tourist attraction in Paris called the Jardin des Plantes, he set out to become recognised like the animalier Antoine Louis Barye.

In fact, there are several monumental statues by Auguste Cain that can be found at different tourist attractions in Paris including several in the Tuileries Gardens, two lions at an entrance to The Louvre Museum, in the Luxembourg Gardens, etc, yet his works can be found in private collections, public places and museums all over the world.
Statue Lion and Lioness Fighting over a Boar on pedestal
So to give you more of an idea as to the location of the Lion and Lioness Fighting Over a Boar statue, this is situated to the right hand side of the steps leading up to the Terrasse des Feuillants, which was constructed by Andre Le Notre on the northern side of the Jardin des Tuileries so that people including the royal family could get a view looking over the gardens.
Rear of the Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue
And while we were standing on the Terrasse des Feuillants looking at the back of the Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue towards the Place de la Concorde, you can see the gates from this historical terrace that lead out to the Rue de Rivoli in the 1st Arrondissement.
Info plaque on Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue
But this close up photo shows the plaque located on the pedestal of the Lion and Lioness Fighting Over a Boar statue by Auguste Nicolas Cain, and as you can see here, this was produced between the years of 1875 through to 1882, yet was not placed within the Tuileries Gardens until 1884.
Barbedienne inscription on Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue
Now when you are looking at the back of this statue and the hinds of the lion and lioness, if you look at the bottom of the bronze statue you will see the name Barbedienne to the left hand side, and this is the name of the foundry that cast this sculpture.
Fondeur Paris inscription on Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier statue
Yet further along on the same side of the statue of the Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier by Auguste Cain, you will also see that this has been inscribed into the bronze stating Fondeur Paris, which actually relates to the foundry in Paris that cast this bronze called the Barbedienne foundry.
