Animal/gazelle

" A gazelle stands, the neck arched and the head back. The sculptor has treated in detail the play of the muscles over the lean body, the slender legs and long neck. The horns are gilded and the eyes touched with black . It was modeled in 1935 at the Philadelphia zoo." ("Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture", Beatrice Gilman Proske, 1968).
