A fine bronze sculpture by Duchoiselle, depicting the High  Priest Eli with the Prophet Samuel as a child.  Duchoiselle supplied ceiling reliefs for the Louvre and Garnier's Opera.  Other examples of this model, which Duchoiselle created along  with a pendant work of a male Indian, probably in the 1860s, were produced in marble by the Frilli Gallery, Florence.  In June, 2014 Sotheby's New York auctioned off two Duchoiselle Indian statues.  In 2009, Pierre Bergé & Associés, of Belgium, auctioned off  a Eli and Samuel at the Temple statue.
