This first HD photo shows a bas relief sculpture of a man with a bird perched on his hand, probably designed as an allegory of a hunter since he has a bow and arrows, which is located on the third level next to a window on the Aile de Flore.
And when you are looking at this facade of the former Palais du Louvre, you will see that this is the very first sculpture from the left hand side of the wing, which also has the letter N either side representing the Emperor Napoleon, and this low relief was put in place in 1866.
Now Louis Merley was born in 1815 to a family of engravers and gunsmiths and generally followed in their footsteps becoming an engraver himself, which is what he is most well known for, having produced the art works for many medals and French gold coins, yet Louis Merley also trained as a sculptor as well, which meant he worked on tourist attractions such as The Louvre.
