Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
It is known that Sandoz was commissioned to execute at least two variations on this composition: the first example with one large frog and four smaller snails, without foundry marks, was installed in the gardens of l'Hotel Beau-Rivage in Lausanne between 1938 and 1945 where it remains to this day.
A second example which is recorded in the catalogue raisonné of the artist by Marcilhac shows one large frog and five snails and is similar, but for the additional snail, to the present model.
There is evidence of a third commission (letters 26 November and 1 December 1968 in the records of the Fondation Edouard & Maurice Sandoz) which refers to the casting of four snails by Godard which are patinated dark green. The Foundation believe that these are almost certainly the present examples to which have been added one of the three frogs which were cast for the Paris Exposition of 1937.
