Prieur executed a Diana with a Stag for the Fountain of Diana at the château de Fontainebleau (1602–3). Four stags heads and four alert hounds by Pierre I Biard adorn its pedestal. It is possible that the present model is a conflation of these efforts and a nod toward the ancient marble known as the Diana of Versailles.
