La Prudence statue on Pavillon des Etats
It was during the Second Empire when there was a large project for decorative public works put in place to provide additional decorations to popular tourist attractions and historical buildings.

Now this particular stone statue of La Prudence is an allegory that is located on the Pavillon des Etats wing of the former Palais du Louvre, which can be seen on the first level balustrade of the facade when you are standing in the Cour du Carrousel courtyard, facing towards the River Seine.
La Prudence statue by artist Jacques Leonard Maillet
And this was produced by Jacques Leonard Maillet who was born in July 1823 and became an academic sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome in 1841, and after spending time studying in Rome he returned to Paris where most of his commissions were for the decorative embellishments like the statue of Prudence you can see in this HD photo.
