‘Captives: La Hollande’ – Martin Desjardins (1637-1694)

Martin-Desjardins-Captives

Says the Artcyclopedia site about this group, of which this figure is one: “This stunning group of sculptures represents prisoners taken by France during the Holland War. Here is the captive known as La Hollande. The Louvre Museum website has images of the remaining three captives.”

This has to be the pick of them, by far.
