LHS Caryatid sculpture by Nicolas Vilain on 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.

And the French sculptor Nicolas Victor Vilain, who was born in 1818 in Paris and passed away in the same city, was noticed after presenting works at art Salons and received numerous public commissions including several others for the Louvre along with additional statues in Paris that were placed on other buildings.
