Unfortunately we have been unable to find out the name of this particular sculpture, although in architectural and art terms it is referred to as a bas relief, or low relief in English, yet this is one of many located on the Aile de Marsan facade of the former Palais du Louvre, which was put in place in the 1870s.
Now this close up HD photo shows the detailing that went into to producing this, which was by Amedee Donation Doublemard, who was born in 1826 and studying under Francisque Duret at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, he won the Prix de Rome in 1855, which meant he could further his studies at the Villa Medici in Italy.
Amedee Donation Doublemard became most well recognised for his portrait busts and statues, receiving many public commissions, with one of his best known works being at the Place Clichy in Paris, but also worked for tourist attractions such as the Theatre de la Gaite Lyrique, Eglise de la Trinite and this one for The Louvre.
However, here you can see one entire top section of the Aile de Marsan with this particular bas relief positioned on the third level to the left hand side of the seventh window below the pediment, which can be seen from the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour du Carrousel.
