La Medecine statue on Rotonde Apollon at Musee du Louvre
When you are within the Cour Napoleon of the famous tourist attraction in Paris called The Louvre, which was a former royal palace turned museum, you will be able to discover numerous decorative statues that adorn the facades.

And this first HD photo shows the allegorical statue called La Medecine positioned on the top level of the Rotonde Apollon wing on the balustrade by the roof line, so when you are view this facade from the courtyard, you will find it in the middle, or to be more precise, the third statue from the right hand side.
La Medecine statue by Isidore Hippolyte Brion
Now this next image shows a close up of La Medecine, which is an allegory designed to represent medicine, and hence why you can see an inscription on the tablet the child is holding, and although cleverly designed with the cloth draping over some of the tablet, if you look carefully you can see that the words say Therapy, Pathology, Physiology and History.

So this particular decorative statue was produced by Isidore Hippolyte Brion who was born in Paris in 1799 and initially studied under his father who was a sculptor and cabinet maker before entering the Ecole des Beaux Arts studying under Francois Jospeh Bosio.

Unfortunately due to ill health, he was unable to travel to Rome to further his studies even after gaining the Prix de Rome twice, yet he did receive public commissions for different works and these include a bust at Chateaux de Versailles, a statue of Hauy at the Natural History Museum and The Medicine seen here, but he was also one of the artists commissioned to help with the sculptures on the River Fountain at the Place de la Concorde.
