Daphne Statue On Aile De Flore At The Louvre

The statue of Daphne was produced by Eugene Andre Oudine who was born in Paris in the January of 1810 and became a French Medallist but also a sculptor, and he obtained numerous different commissions for the design of medals and many statues for tourist attractions in Paris such as churches plus several for the Musee du Louvre, receiving the Legion of Honour in 1857.

Daphne Statue By Sculptor Eugene Andre Oudine

So this close up HD photo shows the detailing that Eugene Andre Oudine put into sculpting this statue of Daphne, which can be found the Aile de Flore wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and this is located on the second level, fifth from the right hand side.

And this is known as an allegory, which depicts Daphne who was a naiad in Greek mythology, and even though a minor figure, the myth behind her is that Apollo was attracted to her beauty and pursued Daphne.

Yet she pleaded for help and was transformed into a laurel tree, which is why you can see laurel branches creeping up the legs and back of the naiad or female nymph, Daphne, during her transformation.
