1.Introduction of bear and tiger fighting statue
The bear and tiger fighting statue in Versailles is a very classic sculpture. The fountain designed
by Jacques Houzo was made in 1687. They are composed of fighting animals, showing an impressive
sense of reality. This sculpture depicts a tiger pressing a bear under its body as if it were subdued.
As the bear opens its mouth and whines, the water from the fountain flows out of its mouth. The tiger
on its body is also roaring loudly, as if it is frightening the animals with its roar. A fountain is also
placed in its mouth to let water flow out of the tiger’s mouth. In each part, the water of the victorious
animals falls into the upper basin, while the water of the defeated animals falls into the lower basin.
This bear and tiger fighting statue is made by the traditional wax losing method. It vividly portrays
the tiger’s regal momentum and fierce image. Although the bear on its body also shows sharp teeth
and claws, it is still inferior to the tiger’s powerful power. This sculpture vividly portrays the images
of tigers and bears, as well as their rich psychological activities. It seems that we have seen a new
battle scene. In the Palace of Versailles, you can see four groups of such vivid scenes, and each
group has very wonderful fighting scenes. If you like this classic fountain replica sculpture or
