was born in Senlis, France. He was a student of Paul Comolera and his attraction to bird sculpture comes from his studies with his teacher. His most plentiful subjects were game birds, but he sculpted dogs, horses
and a few equestrian groups. Moigniez's first recorded exhibit was at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1855, at the age of twenty, where he exhibited a plaster titled Pointer stopping at a Pheasant. Most of Moigniez's bronzes were cast by his father, who was a metal glider by training. Their foundry was established in 1857 solely for the purpose of producing Moigniez's bronzes. The detail in these casts by father and son is exceptional.Bird SculpturesEagles
are members of the bird family Accipitridae, and belong to several genera which are not necessarily closely related to each other. Most of the more than 60 species occur in Eurasia and Africa. Outside this area, just two species, the bald eagle and golden eagle, can be found in the United States and Canada, nine more in Central and South America, and three in Australia. Eagles differ from many other birds of prey mainly by their larger size, more powerful build, and heavier head and beak. Even the smallest eagles have relatively longer and more evenly broad wings, and more direct, faster flight.
