Faune au Chevreau statue in Jardin des Tuileries
This first HD photo shows the statue called Faune au Chevreau, which in English translates to Faun with Kid, although sometimes it is also called Wildlife Kid, and as you can see, is located on a tall pedestal within the Jardin des Tuileries.
LHS of Faune au Chevreau statue
Now this mythical figure depicted in this particular statue is referred to as a Satyr, who has attributes relating to man as well as animals, just like the small tail you can see on the back, and often these types of satyr statues have horns and pointed ears as well.
Back of Faune au Chevreau statue
Another interesting fact is that the original statue based upon this theme was only found in an artists workshop, or studio, back in 1675 through archaeological digs taking place, and then belonged to Queen Christina of Sweden in Rome, yet this is now held at the Prado Museum in Madrid.
Pond and Faune au Chevreau statue
So hence the statue of Faun au Chevreau you can see here is not the original, but was a copy produced by Pierre LePautre, sometimes spelt Le Pautre, who was born in either 1659 or 1660 depending upon the source you read, and having won the Prix de Rome, he studied at the French Academy in Rome.
Statue of Faun holding the Young Goat
It was during this time in Rome that he produced several different sculptures that were copies of the originals, which were sent back to France, and this statue of Faun with Kid, with Kid being a Young Goat, was sculpted in 1685 and shipped back for statuary to adorn the Chateau de Marly.

At first the statue of Faune au Chevreau adorned a room at Marly from 1695, then in 1707 it was moved to an area outside referred to as the Sunset Grove, however, it was then moved to the Jardin des Tuileries in 1797.

And produced in marble, the statue by Pierre Lepautre of the Faun holding the young goat does not finish there, as it was placed on the facade of the Palais des Tuileries, yet retrieved by the Palais du Louvre back in 1872 when this former royal palace was destroyed.

However, this original statue of Faun with Kind was fully restored between the years of 2004 and 2006 with the help of the Pari Mutuel Urain and now held within the famous museum called the Musee du Louvre under inventory number MR 1808.
Winged sphinx statue on exedre
So the statue you can see today is an exact copy, or replica, of the one by Pierre Lepautre and has been placed within an Exedre, which is one of the porticos of the Tuileries Gardens, and this photo shows the sphinx facing the statue in the area at the head of the pond.

And as you can tell, this is positioned in the centre of the stone base called the exedre that protrudes into the pond, and this is an area of The Tuileries Gardens known as the Grand Couvert, due to the fact that it is covered by numerous trees.

Yet with this photo we were standing by one of the restaurants in the Tuileries Gardens as we took this photo looking down the pond towards the statue of the Faun with Kid, which as you can tell, was partially hidden by some of the grasses growing within areas of the pond, but in keeping with the carp ponds originally at Marly, there are still fish present.
