Now this first HD photo shows the statue of Pecheur, positioned in a niche on the first level of the Aile de Marsan wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and as you are looking at the facade from the courtyard, this is located fifth from the right hand side.
And produced by Jacques Marie Hyacinthe Chevalier, who was born in the April of 1825, this allegorical statue was put in place in 1866, along with numerous other allegories that were commissioned to different artists at the same time.
So, this photo shows a closer view of the allegory statue, which in French is called Pecheur, and when translated into English this means Fisherman, and as you can tell from the detailing that went into this sculpture, you can see the man is carrying a net and also there are actually two fish in his right hand.
