And in this photo you can see a closer view of the statue depicting Bernard Palissy, who was a potter and hence why he is holding a vase, and this statue on the Louvre was produced by the artist Victor Huguenin, who had a full name of Jean Pierre Victor Huguenin, and was commissioned by King Louis Philippe I along with several other sculptures in Paris.

And in this last image you can see a close up high definition photo showing the name inscribed on the stone base of the statue dedicated to Bernard Palissy, who was a French potter known for his rustic figurines who worked in Paris at the court for Catherine de Medici, but being a Protestant, he was imprisoned during the Wars of religion and died of poor treatment in Bastille prison in 1590.
