Rembrandt Bugatti

Sculptor: Rembrandt Bugatti...( better pics here)
His story, as far as I can gather:
He loved animals- the big cats... the big cats.
He would go to the Antwerp Zoo to make observations.
During WW1, the zoo-keepers had to kill the animals.
He was deeply saddened.
Soon after, Bugatti took his own life, age 31.

  1. i never knew the big cats in our zoo were killed during the war. I do know one has escaped and killed a mailman during that period.
