The relief sculptures with scenes of everyday life were very popular in ancient Athens. The relief of the cat and dog fight is inspired by a marble base of a kouros statue, that was found at the Themistoclean Wall, at Kerameikos in Athens. The relief dates back to 510 B.C. The relief representation is made of copper with natural oxidation, on linen passpartou, mounted on a wooden frame.

Children and youths are rarely depicted in ancient representations of everyday life. In classical times, the young Athenians used to bred pets. The represenationis depicted on a marble base of a funerary kouros statue with relief scenes, that was found in Athens, probably around  510-500 BC. The base is made of Pentelic marble. It was found in Kerameikos, built into the Themistoclean wall. The statue would have stood on the grave of an athlete. The three sides of the base are decorated in relief.

On the right side of the base, there is the depiction of a scene from everyday life of the ancient Athenians, where two seated youths pair two pets with traditional hostility between them, such as the dog and cat, in a fight.

The marble base of a funerary kouros statue is located at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.
