The bronze statue was lucky find at pompeii (a find for pompei) (1863) represents a naked boy dancing with joy spade with one leg raised, because it has found a Roman statue. Her pose nude reflects that of the statue itself, perhaps indicating that the statue represents the excavator imagining in the laying of the original figure. The statue won a medal at the 1864 Paris Salon and became his most famous piece.The original scale was bought by the French government for 7,000 francs and exhibited at the Universal Exhibition in 1867.
