Marble L'Ordre statue in Square Barye
In this first HD photo you can see a statue group made of marble called L'Ordre, which in English translates to The Order, and this is an allegory, which was originally commissioned to Antoine Louis Barye by the architect Hector Lefeul.

Now originally, this statue group was commissioned for the facade of the former Palais du Louvre on the Pavillon Denon wing, and originally this French sculptor produced a plaster model, which was approved on 18th December 1854 and the original was put in place in 1855 on what is now called the Musee du Louvre.

However, this was replaced with a copy in 1992 and the original was placed within the Musee du Louvre, yet has now been transferred to another popular tourist attraction in Paris called the Musee d'Orsay.

Yet the allegorical statue of The Order you can see in this photograph is positioned on the right hand side of the Barye Monument, which was inaugurated in 1894 and dedicated to the famous animalier sculptor Antoine Louis Barye, and this was executed by Laurent Marqueste, who was also a well respected French sculptor in his time.
