Chantilly /  Les chiens de chasse   Chantilly /  Les chiens de chasse


Two sculpture groups of two dogs each flank the entrance to the castle. These sculptures were commissioned by the Duke of Aumale to Auguste Cain, one of the best animal sculptors of the nineteenth century. The plaster model of these dogs was exhibited at the Salon of 1881. These dogs carry on their flank the mark of the Condé pack: a right-angled triangle symbolizing the royal fleur-de-lis of the Bourbon with, in the center, the stick perished in band, particularity of the junior branch of Condé.

The name of each dog is written on the base: FANFARAUT and BRILLADOR, LUMINEAU and SEDUISANT.
