Greek Muse Erato Statue Aile De Marsan

Now it is when you are within the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel that you can see the facade of the Aile de Marsan wing of the famous tourist attraction known as the Musee du Louvre, and this statue of Erato is located on the second level within a niche.

It was produced by Jean Francois Soitoux who was born in Besancon on 5th September 1816 and studying to become a French sculptor his debut was at the 1850 Paris Salon. And after this statue he received several commissions for statues and allegory sculptures for the former Palais du Louvre including this one, and for the Palais des Tuileries, which was unfortunately destroyed.

Greek Muse Erato Statue By Jean Francois Soitoux

So this particular statue that you can see in this HD photo was sculpted to depict the Greek Muse Erator, who was the muse of lyric poetry in Greek Mythology, which is why she is depicted with a musical instrument called a lyre.

However, the name Erato also relates to desire or love and she is also often depicted as being with the God of Love, Eros, and hence why you can see that she has an arrow in her left hand.
