David Vainqueur De Goliath Statue Jardin Du Luxembourg

So this first HD photo shows the statue on its tall column, and this is located in the green area next to the large basin in the formal garden area of the Luxembourg Gardens, and as you can see, the Palais du Luxembourg is in the background.

Yet this next photo shows a close up of the back of the statue named David vanqueur de Goliath, which in English translates to David winner of Goliath, or David conquers Goliath, and the original statue is thought to be one of the oldest within the Jardin du Luxembourg.

And this photo shows the large basin within the gardens and we were standing on the eastern side when we took this photo of the statue on its exceedingly tall column, and to give you more of a perspective as to its location, the Palais du Luxembourg would be to the right hand side of the image.

Now some sources state that the original statue may have dated from the 1500s, but the French Senate who reside at the former royal palace of the Luxembourg Gardens states that it was more than like put in place when the gardens were remodelled in the 1800s, although the statue itself could still be much older.

However, the statue of David vanqueurs de Goliath that you can see in this close up high definition photo is actually a cast of the original marble statue, which was produced in 1993, so that the marble statue could be restored.

But rather than put the original marble statue back on the top of the column, this was placed within the Palais du Luxembourg so that it would not deteriorate further through weather damage, and therefore, since 1993, everyone visiting these free public gardens will see the exact copy, or cast.

And this statue of David Winner of Goliath is actually only 1.5 metres in height, which gives you a greater idea of how tall the column is, and this is classed as one of the statues within the series of antique statues, but unfortunately there is no documentation that has been found to ascertain who actually sculpted this originally.
