Gabriel Cornelius von Max: Saure Erfahrung [Sour experience] (after 1900)

Paolo Trubeckoj: I divoratori di cadaveri [The devourers of corpses] (~1900)

Paolo Trubeckoj was als known as Prince Petr Petrovich Troubetzkoy.

The sculpture shows a man eating a piece of meat and a young dead pig on the table. This part of the sculpture has the inscription "contro natura" (against nature). Next to the table there is a hyena feeding on a human cadaver. There is an inscription that says "secondo natura" (in accordance with nature).
Paolo Trubeckoj was a convinced ethical vegetarian (since 1899). Tolstoy admired him.

Here you can see that they're actually two sculptures.
