Aile de Marsan 6th window left side bas relief sculpture
A bas relief, or low relief, is a sculptural term to define a specific style of sculpture often found on monuments or within architectural elements for buildings, and in this first HD photo you can see one of the many bas reliefs that are located on the Aile de Marsan, which was produced during the restoration of the former Palais du Louvre.
6th Window left side bas relief sculpture by Henri Charles Maniglier
Although we have been unable to find out a name for this sculpture, which we presume probably relates to a Greek or Roman God, in this close up photograph you can see the detailing that went into just this one decorative element on The Louvre, which was produced by Henri Charles Maniglier.

Henri Charles Maniglier was born in Paris in 1826 and studied to become a French sculptor, starting at the ecole des Beaux Arts in 1843, first presenting works at the 1850 Salon for French artists where he continued to exhibit for the remainder of his career, winning medals and awards along the way and receiving numerous public commissions.

In fact, as well as this bas relief positioned on the third level of the Aile de Marsan to the left hand side of the sixth window below the pediment, Henri Charles Maniglier also executed the two other relief sculptures you can see in this image along with no less than three others for the Louvre Museum, but these particular ones can be seen on the Marsan Wing from the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel.
