Goddess Of Dancing Statue Terpsichore

Recessed into an alcove the statue Terpsichore is positioned on the second level and is the very first one to the left hand side of this wing, and it was designed by Aime Millet, who was born in 1819, becoming a renowned French sculptor who was awarded the Legion of Honour,and he produced many different allegorical statues including this one and a group on the Opera Garnier.

But getting back specifically to this statue on the former Palais du Louvre, it was put in place in 1865 and was designed as an allegory for the Goddess of dancing and chorus music in Greek mythology, and the name Terpischore comes from two Greek words meaning delight and dance, so hence the allegory is sometimes referred to as Delight in Dancing, rather than the official mythological name.
