We were still admiring the Pavillon Turgot section of the Musee du Louvre, when we took these high definition photos showing a statue called La Religion, which was sculpted by Jean Marie Bonnassieux.

La Religion Statue By Jean Marie Bonnassieux

This first HD photo shows the statue known as an allegory called La Religion, and as you can tell, the artist has depicted a religious figure for this composition, which is made of stone and was put in place on the Turgot Pavion of the former Palais du Louvre back in 1857.

Now this next image shows the location of The religion statue, which is on the left hand side corner by the roofline as you are looking at the picture, and this particular allegorical statue can be seen from both of the courtyards called the Cour du Carrousel and the Cour Napoleon.

And you will find that La Religion was produced by Jean Marie Bienaime Bonnassieux, who was born in the Loire region of France, yet went to study at the School of Fine Arts in Paris and was a co-winner of the Prix de Rome with Auguste Ottin.

Having returned to Paris from his stay at the Villa Medicis, Jean Marie Bonnassieux received several public commissions, yet because he was a devout Catholic, many of his statues had a religious theme and were sculpted for churches or for tombs all over France, but this is no doubt why he was chosen to produce this particular Religion statue on the Louvre Museum.
