Huntington was one of the most prominent animal sculptors of the early twentieth century, celebrated for her keen powers of observation. For this group, also known as "Goats Butting," she sculpted one goat lunging forcefully from its planted rear leg toward another, which stands its ground on three legs. Their horns are locked in combat, and the rocky terrain emphasizes the brutality of the conflict.
