LHS Caryatid Sculpture By Nicolas Vilain Pavillon Colbert

So this particular statue called a caryatid, or cariatide in French, is basically a part of architecture with an ornate design of a female figure that provides a support in place of a column, and this, along with the one opposite and the coronation sculpture above the window of the Colbert Pavilion were all produced by the same artist, Nicolas Victor Vilain.
