Rembrandt Bugatti made quite a few representations of secretary birds, a tall and elegant wader with a two-tone plumage. Our sculpture is inventoried in the Cahier Hébrard under the title ‘Female with folded neck’. Up to now only nine copies of this sculpture have been listed. With this number three copy, it can be established that there has been in all ten copies of this artwork.
