Le Patriotisme statue at Pavillon des Etats
So as you are standing in the Cour du Carrousel looking in the direction of the River Seine, you will see the facade of the Louvre Museum called the Pavillon des Etats, which in English translates to Pavilion of the States.

And this allegorical statue of Le Patriotisme, which in English translates to Patriotism, is located on the balustrade of the first level and can be found on the far end on the right hand side of this wing, although, as you can tell from this HD photo, there was unfortunately no head when we took the picture.

Yet this was produced by Louis Leon Cugnot who was born in Paris in 1835 and entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts to become a French sculptor, and became a co winner of the Prix de Rome in 1859.

So Louis Leon Cugnot, often known as just Leon Cugnot was able to further his studies at the French academy at the Villa Medici in Rome, and after returning to Paris, he produced several memorial works, along with different statues including this one for The Louvre, medallions and bas reliefs, and even a monument now in Peru.
