And this particular stone statue was produced by Jules-Antoine Droz who was the son of a renowned engraver, and born in March 1804 in Paris he became a French sculptor and painter, passing away in the same city in January 1872 and is buried in Pere Lechaise cemetery with his son.
Name inscription on Pierre Chambiche statue
So as you can see from this close up HD photo showing the inscription plaque at the base of the statue, this is dedicated to Pierre Chambiche, however, his name is often spelt Chambiges, and although there is no exact date or even year of birth known, he died in the June of 1544.

But becoming a French master mason and architect to King Francois I of France and his son King Henri II, he worked on numerous royal palaces including the Palais du Louvre and the Chateau de Fontainebleau along with the original City Hall in Paris, which is why he was chosen for one of the commemorative statues on The Louvre.
