Located on a wing of the former Palais du Louvre called the Aile de Marsan, four different statue groups were placed on the facade that correspond with those on the Aile de Flore on the opposite side of the Cour du Carrousel courtyard, which were reporduced several times for these wings.
So this statue is called Groupe d'Animaux, which in English translates to Group of Animals, and when you are looking at the Aile de Marsan you can see that this is positioned to the left hand side below the second pediment, above a bas relief sculpture on the third level.
Now this next HD photo shows a close up of the Group of Animals statue depicting two dogs with collars and chains either side of a globe that has stars on it, with another on top, which was produced by Emmanuel Fremiet in the 1860s.
And to give you a little background information on Emmanuel Fremiet, he was born in 1824 and studied to become a French sculptor, mainly concentrating on animal statues, especially those of wild animals, yet his most famous work is no doubt that of the equestrian statue of Joan of Arc located at the Place des Pyramides, close to the Louvre Museum.
