Navigation Statue Aile En Retour Mollien Louvre

Here you can see the statue called La Navigation which is located on the top level balustrade of the Aile en retour Mollien wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and when you are within the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, you will see this is the second statue from the left hand side as you are looking at the facade.

Now this close up HD photo shows the detailing that went into producing this statue, which is an allegory depicting navigation, and hence why you can see items that relates to ships and travel such as a globe, ropes and part of an anchor.

And originally a plaster model was first designed of La Navigation, which was by Charles Louis Menn who was born in 1822 and becoming a sculptor, he received many public commissions including this one for The Louvre, yet he was even commissioned for work on the Palais de l'Athenee in Geneva.

But getting back to this particular statue, as you can see this is made of stone and it was put in place on the Palais du Louvre in 1857, yet the initial plaster model is now held within the Musee d'Orsay, which is another very popular tourist attraction in Paris.
