Although information on this artist is not known, the natural posture and the active movement of the modeling suggest the Ostrich may be an example of a later
(1880–1920), impressionistic style of Animalier sculpture.

The artist may have been Belgian or Dutch. During the late nineteenth century, many artists commuted between Antwerp and Paris to view animals at zoological parks in both cities.
