Caryatid Sculpture LHS Pavillon Daru

This first HD photo shows a female figure known as a Caryatid, which is spelt cariatide in French, and these are designed as ornate architectural supports in place of columns or pillars that have been used for many centuries, but this particular one was only put in place in 1857.

Pavillon Daru Caryatid Sculpture By Jean Louis Brian

Now this is a close up of the Caryatid showing the detail that went into producing this, which was by the French sculptor Jean Louis Brian who was born in the Avignon in 1805, but moved to Paris in 1827, winning the Prix de Rome in 1832, and after his return from Italy spent the remainder of his life mainly working on different tourist attractions in Paris.

Yet this last image shows the entire Daru Pavilion located within the Cour Napoleon courtyard of the former Palais du Louvre in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, and you can see that the Caryatid is positioned on the third level to the left hand side of the dormer window below the top pediment.
