And as we mentioned above, the stone statue you can see in this HD photo was produced by Pierre Travaux, who was born in March 1822 in Corsaint, and through a short career he was commissioned for many public statues including some for The Louvre, but passed away in Paris only days after his 47th birthday in March 1869.
