This piece corresponds to the second period of collaboration between Auguste Rodin and the Manufacture de Sèvres around 1887. Here Rodin uses motifs from his monumental sculpture group The Gates of Hell.

During his residency at Sèvres, he mixed techniques from the Sèvres tradition (paste on paste) with others more specifically related to his practice as a sculptor (modelling in the round and in bas-relief) and as a painter and engraver.

Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) worked as a decorator at the Manufacture de Sèvres from 1879 to 1882. There, he produced numerous vases decorated with figures in relief or in relief, in a variety of shapes and colours, and perfected a new technique of engraved decoration on raw clay.
