Pollux Statue On Aile De Flore

So this first HD photo shows the statue of Pollux located on a niche on the Aile de Flore wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and when you are looking at the facade from the Cour du Carrousel, you will find this on the first level, fifth from the right hand side.

Pollux Statue Sculpted By Jean Claude Petit

And this statue was produced by the French sculptor Jean Claude Petit, who also sculpted the statue next to it of Castor, and this one is designed to represent Pollux who was the twin brother of Castor in Roman and Greek mythology.

And Pollux was the devine son of Zeus, who had turned into a swan to seduce his mother Leda, yet the father of his twin Castor was the King of Sparta, who was the husband of Leda, and these twins are referred to as Dioskouri, yet in Latin they are known as Gemini.
