2nd Window LHS Groupe d'Animaux Statue Aile Flore

This first HD photo shows a statue group depicting two dogs changed up next to a central sphere with a crown on the top, and this is one of a set of four different statue groups located on the Aile de Flore wing of the former Palais du Louvre.

Now this particular Group of Animals statue can be seen from the courtyard of The Louvre called the Cour du Carrousel and is positioned above a bas relief sculpture below the second pediment and is located to the left hand side of the second window as you are looking at the facade.

LHS Groupe d'Animaux Statue By Emmanuel Fremiet

You will find that the Groupe d'Animaux was put in place in 1866, having been produced by Emmanuel Fremiet who was born in Paris in 1824 and initially studied drawing before focusing more on sculpture, and animals in particular being his main subjects, becoming an expert in animal anatomy and a highly sought after artist.

There are numerous statues found at tourist attractions all over Paris that were sculpted by Emmanuel Fremiet including at the Musee d'Orsay, Pont Alexandre III, Musee du Louvre and the Jardin des Plantes where he also became the professor of drawing at the Natural History Museum, yet his most famous work is no doubt the gilded equestrian statue of Joan of Arc found at the Place des Pyramides.
