We were again at the Petit Palais in the 8th Arrondissement of Paris when we took these high definition photos showing the statue called Archeologie, which was sculpted by Charles Desvergnes.

Archeologie Statue On Petit Palais Roof

This first HD photo shows the statue called Archeologie, which in English translates to Archeology, and this was produced for when the Petit Palais was first constructed for the 1900 World Fair in Paris, which was the same time that two other famous tourist attractions called the Grand Palais and the Pont Alexandre III were also constructed.

So this stone statue was produced by Charles Desvergnes who was born in August 1860 and studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts to become a French sculptor and after winning the Prix de Rome furthered his studies at the Villa Medici before returning to Paris where he started to receive numerous public commissions including this allegory of Archeologie.

However, after World War I, also known as the Great War, there was a massive demand for monuments and war memorials, and Charles Desvergnes was commissioned to produce many of these that can be found in towns and cities throughout France, along with many other works in different churches including several statues of Joan of Arc.

Now this next photograph shows a different angle of the allegorical Archeology statue on the Petit Palais, with the female figure holding what would be remains like a vase found in excavations, and next to this you can see another sculpture positioned on the ballustrade that represents the city of Paris.

Petit Palais Eastern Facade Statues

But this last photo shows the main part of the Petit Palais facade with the clock twoer section and the Archeologie statue positioned by the roof line above the pediment to the right hand side, yet the allegory to the left was also produced by Charles Desvergnes.

And to give you even more of an idea as to the location, this is the side of the Petit Palais facing east towards the Jardins des Champs Elysees and the Pavillon Ledoyen.
