And as we mentioned earlier, this was produced by the French sculptor known as Auguste Preault, although he was actually born within the Marais area of Paris in 1809 with the name of Antoine-Augustin Preault, and even though he produced statues, he is most well known for his execution of several medallions, which can be found on tombs and monuments as well as within collections of the Louvre Museum.
