Here you can see a close up of the statue of Saint Clotilde, which was sculpted by Pierre Loison who was born in 1816, initially apprenticing as a clog maker before obtaining a grant allowing him to study in Paris to become a French sculptor.

Gaining many medals throughout his career, Pierre Loison received several public commissions for The Louvre along with other tourist attractions such as the Palais Garnier Opera House, Hotel de Ville and of course this one for the Eglise Saint-Roch.
