Description

Found in the surroundings of Luxembourg and kept in the Louvre Museum, this bronze cast from the Gallo-Roman period (approx. 1st century B.C.) is one of the most interesting and best preserved of all those that have come down to us. It combines the naturalism dear to the Romans and the taste of the Gauls for stylization and decorative compositions. This wild boar is charging, its head raised towards the enemy. The remarkable treatment of the hair gives it a very vivid impression of power and movement. It could be an ex-voto, an offering to a god.
