And this stone statue was produced by Louis Julien Franceschi, who was known as Jules Franceschi, and of Italian origin he was born on 11th January 1825 in the Champagne Ardenne region of France.
And after studying with the famous French sculptor Francois Rude, he became a sculptor himself, executing numerous different statues and sculptures around Paris, including several for the Louvre museum and the Hotel de Ville, until passing away in Paris on 1st September 1893.
