The acquisition of this statuette was thus of major significance as it completed Le Sueur's important sculpture group and transformed its appearance, rendering it more interesting and meaningful. The crouching warrior physically supports the rearing horse and dramatically completes the composition. Le Sueur was sculptor by appointment to two kings, Henri IV of France, and Charles I of England at whose court he carried out a number of important commissions including the life-size equestrian statue now in Trafalgar Square.
