So this first HD photo shows the statue of Le Travail Manuel, which in English translates to The Manual Labourer, and made of stone, it is classed as an allegory that was put in place on the Palais du Louvre in 1857.
Now this was produced by Auguste Louis Marie Ottin, who was born in 1811 and became a French academic sculptor, having been a student of David d'Angers and studying at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.
And during his career he received numerous public commissions both within Italy where he resided for a while after gaining the Prix de Rome, and also within Paris and other areas of France during the Second Empire.
Yet Auguste Ottin is mainly recognised for his impressive statue group called Polyphemus Surprising Acis and Galatea, which can be found on the Fontaine Medicis within the Luxembourg Gardens, but he produced sculptures and statues for other famous tourist attractions including the Opera Garnier, the Gare du Nord and of course this one for The Louvre.
