In this first HD photo, you can see that this allegorical statue called La Moisson, or in English The Harvest, is positioned on the top level of the former palace and famous tourist attraction, and this can be found on the Aile Colbert wing, right by one of the chimneys.
Yet this next image shows a closer view of La Moisson statue, and from this it shows the amount of work that went into producing just this one ornate sculpture where you can see the sheaf's of wheat, corn and different tools that were used during a harvest.
And this allegory was produced by Georges Jacques, who was born in Nancy in 1794 and after studying under another French sculptor called Francois Joeph Bosio in Paris, then winning the Prix de Rome, he became a well recognised French sculptor himself.
So, through these efforts and presenting works at different Paris Salons, he received several public commissions with four for The Louvre alone, and this statue of The Harvest is just one of these, but you can also see the original plaster model of this allegory, which is held within another famous museum in Paris called the Musee d'Orsay.
