The original bronze invention was attributed by Bode to Giambologna, but the Dhanens rejected this idea. According to Avery this sculpture is close to Giambologna's themes, but it could be attributed to the workshop of Gianfrancesco Susini. 


This rare casting is known in three examples, one in the Berlin State Museum, the other in Williams College of Art, Massachusetts, and the third in the Collection of Michael Hall.


Following these indications, our casting is also attributed to the school of Gianfrancesco Susini.
