Front: the bust of a young man with long hair, looking to the left (Orpheus). He hugs his lyre with his left hand. Back: in the centre, a naked, winged young man sits on an empty inscription plate enframed by laurel boughs. He holds a trumpet in his left and a pen in his right hand. There is a scroll of music notes in front of him, and a violin below the plate. A copy of this piece was bought by Jenő Radisics at the 1900 Paris International Exhibition, from Coudray, who had won a silver medal. The Orpheus medal is one of the most well-known among Coudray's works.
