Unfortunately we have been unable to find out for definite the name of this bas relief, which in English is low relief, and this is a style of sculpture often found on building facades, like you can see in this first HD photo, which is on the Aile de Flore facade of the former Palais du Louvre.
Yet some places to state that this is called Europe, and this bas relief was put in place in 1866 and when you are standing in the courtyard of The Louvre called the Cour du Carroussel, you can see that this is on the third level of the Aile de Flore to the left hand side of the third window below the pediment.
However, we do know that this was produced by Camille Demesmay who was born in Besacon in 1815 and initially took a law degree, yet at the same time studied art and sculpture, and even though he qualified to become a judge, he opted for an artists life and started presenting works at the Salons.
Camille Demesmay went on to receive many public commissions with five of these being for the Louvre Museum including this Europe bas relief, along with statues and busts that can be seen at other tourist attractions like the Jardin du Luxembourg and the Chateau de Versailles.
