Alexandre Combattant Statue In Jardin Des Tuileries

With this fist image, you can see a close up photo of the Alexandre Combattant statue, which was produced in stone by the artist and sculptor Charles-Francois Leboeuf back in 1836, who also produced many other statues in Paris.

In this next photo, you can see that this statue has been positioned on the top of a large stone base, but unfortunately, the Alexandre Combattant statue is a lot worse for wear now than when it was first put in place, as both of the hands are missing, along with the right foot, which were all in place from an old photograph we saw that was taken before World War I.

Now with this photograph you can see the location of the Alexandre Combattant statue, sitting next to the gravel pathway in the Grand Carre area of the Tuileries gardens, and originally his right hand that is now missing, was actually holding a sword, and this was one of the stone statues that the French Government commissioned Charles-Francois Leboeuf, often known as Nanteuil, to produce.

View Showing Back Of Alexandre Combattant Statue

This photo was taken showing the back of the Alexandre Combattant statue while looking towards the famous Louvre Museum, which is part of the building you can see in the background, and when you translate its name to English this would be called Alexander Fighting.
