RHS Caryatid sculpture west facade of Pavillon Mollien
In this first photo you can see one of the many statues on The Louvre, and this one was produced in 1857 by the French sculptor Eugene Louis Lequesne who was born and died in Paris, and having been awarded the Grand Prize for sculpture at a Universal Exhibition in Paris he was also awarded the Legion of Honour for his works.

Now this slightly closer photograph shows the statue known as a Caryatid, or cariatide in French, and this is basically a sculpted female figure designed as a support in place of a pillar or column, which makes a facade more ornate, and as you can see from this image it is supporting an entablature often used in classical architecture, which is like a modern day lintel.
