Biography Theodore Riviere
Théodore Rivière was one of the leading Orientalist sculptors. He not
only drew on literary texts but traveled extensively in North Africa,
the Far East and South America.
The subject of his work titled Mathô, the chief of the Barbarian soldiers was taken from Gustave Flaubert’s novel,
Salammbô, published in 1862. The story takes place between 241–238 BC,
during the revolt of Carthage. The Libyan chief Mâthô, fell in love with
the priestess Salammbô, the daughter of his Carthaginian enemy Hamilcar
Rivière has chosen the moment when, mortally wounded by the people,
Mâthô dies at the feet of Salammbô claiming “I love you! I love you!”
