Le Laboureur statue on Musee du Louvre
This first HD photo shows the statue of Le Laboureur, which in English translates to The Labourer, and originally a model was produced by the artist first, which can still be seen today within the Musee d'Orsay.

Then the final stone statue was sculpted and put in place within an ornate niche on the second level of the Grande Galerie Orientale facade back in 1857, which was during the time when numerous decorative embellishments were being added to this famous tourist attraction in Paris.

And this statue, known as an allegory, was sculpted by Jean Claude Petit, who also sculpted several other statues for the Musee du Louvre, which at the time was still known as the Palais du Louvre.

However, as you can tell from this image, unfortunately some parts of the Labourer statue are missing including his hand, but this can still be viewed from the south side of the historical palace, right by the River Seine.
