This time we were walking along the River Seine, yet still admiring the facades of the former Palais du Louvre located in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, and we took these high definition photos showing the statue of Bacchus, the Roman God of Wine that was sculpted by Joseph Fenlon.

So this first HD photo shows that the statue of Bacchus is positioned within a niche, and this is located on what is called the Pavillon de Tremoille, and as you are looking at the facade of the Musee du Louvre from the Pont du Carrousel, this is the pavilion or wing to the left hand side of the arched entrance way facing the River Seine.
And located on the second level of the facade, this statue was sculpted by Joseph Fenlon and was designed to depict Bacchus who was the Roman God of Wine in mythology.
Now Bacchus was the child of Jupiter, yet in Greek mythology his counterpart is called Dionysus, who was also a god of wine and merriment, and this is why Bacchus has been depicted here with a bunch of grapes within his hand.
