Statue Of Circe On Aile De Flore At The Louvre

In this first HD photo you can see the statue of Circe located within a niche, and this is position on the far right hand side of the second level of the Aile de Flore wing of the former Palais du Louvre, which can be seen from the Cour du Carrousel courtyard.

So Circe is the Goddess of Magic in Greek mythology and in most accounts she was the daughter of Helios, the God of the Sun and Perse, however, in some stories she was meant to be the daughter of Hecate, the Goddess of Witchcraft, which does relate to Circe being renowned for her knowledge of herbs and potions.

Goddess Of Magic Statue Circe By Pierre Alexandre Schoenewerk

Now the Circe statue was just one of several statues that were produced for the Musee du Louvre by Pierre Alexandre Schoenewerk, who was born in Paris in 1820 and initially studied painting as well as sculpture under Henri Triqueti.

Yet he went on to study under David d'Angers and received many other public commissions for tourist attractions in Paris including the church of Sorbonne and the Hotel de Ville in Paris along with a monumental statue located at the Musee d'Orsay, to name a few.
