La Justice sculpture, Pavillon Mollien, Musee du Louvre
This first HD photo shows an allegorical statue called La Justice located on the Pavillon Mollien of the former Palais du Louvre, and unfortunately, although it is hard to make out due to the fact that it was reasonably dark and netting has been placed over a part of the statue to protect it, in the left hand of the seated male figure representing Justice, he is holding a laurel wreath.
La Justice sculpture by Camille Demesmay
Now here you can see a close up photograph showing some of the detailing that was put into this statue, which was sculpted by Camille Demesmay who was born in Besancon in 1815, however, depending upon what sources you read, some say April and others say August of that year, so we have been unable to ascertain which date is correct.
Louvre, Pavillon Mollien 4th level with La Justice
Initially Camille Demesmay studied law to follow in his fathers footsteps, but renounced becoming a judge as he wished to follow his passion of drawing and sculpture that he had studied at the same time as his degree, so devoted himself to art and exhibited regularly at the Paris Salons, receiving different commissions for tourist attractions including a few for The Louvre and one of the series of queens for the Luxembourg Gardens.
West facade Pavillon Mollien, La Justice statue, Paris
However, in this image you can see the entire western facade of the Pavillon Mollien, which is actually the side that faces onto the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour du Carrousel, rather than the one facing the Cour Napoleon.

So when you are standing within this courtyard you can see the Justice statue located to the right hand side of this pavilion by the roof line on the outside edge of the dormer positioned on the parapet, nearest to the Aile en retour Mollien.
