This is one of twelve bronze casts made from the original marble sculpture, which is in the collection of Kettle's Yard, Cambridge. In this small work Gaudier has reduced the anatomy of the bird to simple geometric shapes. The head seems to resemble a hammer, the body and tail a flint tool or arrowhead. By August 1914 Gaudier had gone to fight in the French army and was killed on 5 June 1915.
