Le Guerrier attendant le combat statue on Grande Galerie
Le Guerrier attendant le combat, which in English generally translates to The Warrior ready for battle, is located within a niche on the wing of the Louvre museum called the Grande Galerie Orientale, as you can see from this photograph.

And classed as an allegorical statue, you can see that the sculptor has depicted the man with a spear, shield, helmet and other armour, typical of numerous depictions of Roman and Greek warriors that have been produced as statues over the years.

Now Le Guerrier attendant le combat was sculpted by Eugene Andre Oudine who was born in Paris in 1810, and although he became a French sculptor, he was also a medal engraver, which is what he became most well known for.

In fact, he took the Prix de Rome for engraving, rather than for sculpture like many other artists, and worked for the French Mint, yet Eugene Andre Oudine also produced many monumental works that can be viewed by the public in places such as the Tuileries Gardens and the Jardin du Luxembourg, along with statues for The Louvre including this one of The Warrior ready for battle.
