This first HD photo shows l'Industrie statue, which was produced in stone and is an allegory that when translated into English means the Industry, and it was put in place on the Aile Turgot wing of the former Palais du Louvre back in 1857.
So as you can no doubt tell, this is on the top level of the Turgot wing, which is the northern facade of the Napoleon courtyard, and this statue is located fourth from the left hand side in front of a chimney.
And this was produced by the French sculptor Pierre Damiens who was born in 1824 and passed away in 1902, and initially he produced a plaster model showing engineering machinery to represent industry along with a young child, like you will see in numerous different statues on the Louvre.
This was documented in a volume and album called the Tuileries meeting at the Louvre, and this is now held by the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, and details the different statues with photographs for the Palais du Louvre.
