Diane Sculpture RHS 1st Window Group Aile Flore

This first HD photo shows a statue group with a female figure in the middle depicting Diane, spelt Diana in English, who was the Goddess of the Hunt in mythology and being associated with wild animals, she is flanked by two on either side.

So when you are standing on the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, you will see the Diane statue group positioned below the pediment on the facade of the former Palais du Louvre called the Aile de Flore, and there are four different sets of these on this wing, with two of them being produced by the artist Emmanuel Fremiet, yet this particular one is to the right hand side of the first window.

RHS 1st Window Group Diane Sculpture By Emmanuel Fremiet

Here you can see a close up of the Diane statue group that was sculpted by Emmanuel Fremiet who was born in 1824 and studied to become a French sculptor under people such a Francois Rude, yet he also studied drawing and osteology, which is a study of anatomy like bone structure, and his main focus was on animals.

Emmanuel Fremiet became known as the leading animalier of his times, in other words, a sculptor of animals, with many of his works to be found at tourist attractions around Paris such as the Musee d'Orsay, Jardin des Plantes and The Louvre, yet his most famous work is the gilded statue of Joan of Arc located at the Place des Pyramides, and he succeeded Antoine Louis Barye as the professor of animal drawing at the Natural History Museum.
