This first HD photo shows the statue of Sainte Marie d'Egypte, which in English translates to Saint Mary of Egypt and she is known as the Patron Saint of Penitents in Eastern and Oriental Orthodox churches as well as within Roman Catholic Religion, where penance is basically repenting sins via confession, hence why there is a statue of her on this Roman Catholic church in Paris called the Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois.
Now this next image shows the location of the statue on the outside edge pillar within the porch of the Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois, which is on the western side of this extremely historical former royal church located at the Place du Louvre, opposite the Cour Carree of the Musee du Louvre in the 1st Arrondissement.
And in this last close up photo you can see the statue of Sainte Marie d'Egypte who is depicted holding three loaves of bread, and although this statue is old, dating from the 1800s, it is actually a copy of the original statue that was put in place in the 1500s, but was destroyed during the French Revolution, yet it still follows the same story of when she went to live as a hermit in penitence, only taking with her the loaves of bread.
