General view of the statue called Lion tuant une chevre or Lion et mouflon (Lion killing a goat), created by Paul Jouve circa 1937 and located in front of the Art Deco Fauverie (the big cats building) built by Rene Berger, in the Menagerie of Jardin des Plantes, Paris, 5th arrondissement, France. The bronze statue of the Lion tuant une chevre was cast by the Fonderie Rudier, a foundry created in 1792 and also producing Auguste Rodin, Aristide Maillol and Antoine Bourdelle master pieces. Founded in 1794 by Jacques Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, the Menagerie of Jardin des Plantes became the largest exotic animal collection in Europe in the 19th century and is the second oldest public zoo in the world.
