Part of Baxter's Gems of the
Great Exhibition, this print represents a portion
of the Foreign Department. The statue on the left is that
of "A Child, Dog, and Serpent," by M. Lechesne,
and on the right is the companion group. In the centre is
"The dead mother on the prairie with her living babe
at her breast." Immediately behind the central group
is another in bronze, called "The Death of the Stag,"
by Mr. J. De Bay, a French sculptor. Beyond that is the
stained-glass window by G. Bertini, of Milan , and in the
extreme distance is the organ, by Gray and Davidson. In
the gallery are specimens of the productions of the silk
looms of Lyons , Austria , etc.
