Photos of Napoleon III statue over entrance at the Louvre museum in Paris France - Page 72
Just by the River Seine there is an entrance to The Louvre Museum and the courtyard where you can access the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and the Tuileries Gardens, and this is a photo of a bronze sculpture above the archways at this entrance that also has a placque above stating Napoleon III Empereur.

This next photo shows the facade of Musee du Louvre with this ornate and impressive statue above one of the entrance ways, which goes from the River Seine side to the Cour du Carrousel, and as we mentioned in the previous picture, there is a plaque above, which mentions napoleon III, although some people do say that the horse is Pagasus, rather than a young Napoleon with his steed.
But this was apparently produced in the 1800s when much of The Louvre museum had additional statues and sculptures added to the impressive former palace.
