Roman Goddess Of Wisdom Statue Minerve

This first HD photo shows the statue depicting Minerve, which in English is actually Minerva, and this can be found on the second level of the Aile de Flore wing, within a niche, and it is the third statue from the left hand side by the balcony, as you are looking at the facade from the Cour du Carrousel courtyard of the Musee du Louvre.

Minerve Statue By Jacques Leonard Maillet

Now this statue was sculpted in 1865 to represent Minerva, who was the Roman Goddess of Wisdom, and just like the statue you can see in this image, she is often depicted with her sacred creature of an owl, known as the Owl of Minerva, which symbolises her connection with wisdom.

And the statue of Minerva was produced by Jacques Leonard Maillet who was born in July 1823 and became a French sculptor in the neoclassical style, winning the Prix de Rome in 1847, which led to many public commissions for decorative sculptures on historical monuments during the Second Empire including an additional statue for the Louvre depicting one of the famous men in French history.
