Le Jeune Braconnier

Amongst the trees at Château de Fontainebleau, we came across Le Jeune Braconnier – or The Young Poacher.

The lifelike marble sculpture was created by recipient of the French Legion of Honour, Charles Gauthier, and depicts a young boy showing his excited dog a captured rabbit. Or more like teasing it.

He looks like a bit of a brat, if you ask me. If I was that dog, I’d have ripped the rabbit from his hands and asked, “Who’s laughing now?”. And on that snarky note..

Bonne journée!
