La Paix statue at Aile Colbert
This first HD photo shows the La Paix statue, which in English translates to The Peace, and as you can no doubt tell, this is positioned on the very top level by the roof on the former Palais du Louvre.

And this allegory can be found on the Aile Colbert wing right by one of the chimneys, which was put in place in 1857, and as you are looking at the facade from the courtyard, you will find this located second from the right hand side.
La Paix statue by Charles Romain Capellaro
So this allegorical statue of peace was produced by Charles Romain Capellaro, who was of Italian origin, yet born in France in 1826, and studying under famous French sculptors including David d'Angers and Francois Rude, he became a sculptor himself.

However, he was active within the Paris Commune, which led to Charles Romain Capellaro being sentenced, deported and banished from France for a minimum of ten years, yet he returned to Paris and resumed his career, eventually passing away in Paris in 1899.

And now there are numerous statues and sculptures that can be found within different museums across the country, yet this sculptor is most well recognised for his funerary monuments including busts and medallions that can be found on many tombs within cemeteries such as Pere Lechaise, which is where Charles Romain Capellaro is buried.
