L'Asie is an allegorical statue, which in English translates to Asia and when you are within the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel looking at the facade of the Pavillon Lesdiguieres, you will see this positioned by the roof line second statue from the right hand side.

However, you could also class this as the first small statue on the right hand side of this particular wing, which was put in place on the Musee du Louvre during the restoration works and additional embellishments that were being added to the former royal palace known as the Palais du Louvre.

So this next HD photo shows the detailing that went just this one allegorical statue of Asia, which was produced by Jean Jacques Elshoecht who was born in 1797, and receiving a scholarship to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, he studied under Francois Bosio.

Jean Jacques Elshoecht became a well recognised French sculptor receiving numerous commissions, and throughout his career produced over seventy different statues and sculptures, many of which can be seen within different museums in France and at famous tourist attractions in Paris including the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Place de la Concorde and this one on The Louvre, but unfortunately he passed away in 1856 having suffered a lightning strike.
