    The original bronze version of the sculpture is now in the Musée National d'Art Moderne, Paris (gift of Mme Pevsner; included in Pevsner retrospective, Musée National d'Art Moderne, Paris, 1957, cat. no. 49).
    Two other bronze casts exist: at the Caracas University Center, in Venezuela, and the Baltimore Museum of Art (casts number one and two, respectively). It is known that the second cast was made by the Susse foundry, Paris, in 1960 (information provided by Brenda Richardson, Baltimore Museum of Art), so the third cast, also by Susse, must have been made between 1960 and the time of the addendum (date unknown) to Carola Giedion-Welcker's Pevsner monograph of 1961, in which it is listed.
