And in this last photograph you can see the plaque located on the plinth at the base of the statue, which as you can tell, is dedicated to Gerard Audran who was born in Lyon in 1640 and became an engraver, who, after being in Paris went to Rome to study and work, yet from the influence of Colbert, he was asked to return to Paris and became the official engraver to the king, Louis XIV.
