Allegory statue group of France Pavillon de Rohan
France assise au dessous des armes imperiales qu'entourent la science et le travail, translates in English to France sitting below the imperial arms that surround science and work, as you can see from this first HD photo of the elaborate composition that was put in place in 1857.
South side Pavillon de Rohan pediment statue group
So this next image shows the entire top pediment of the Pavillon de Rohan wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and this was all produced by Georges Diebolt who was born in Dijon in 1816, yet studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris to become a French sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome in 1841.
France statue Pavillon de Rohan Louvre
During the Second Empire, Georges Diebolt received many public commissions for monumental works including this one of France assise au dessous des armes imperiales qu’entourent la science et le travail, and here you can see the statue, which is the allegory depicting France.

And although Georges Diebolt had a very short career, dying at only aged 45, some of his works are referred to as monumental masterpieces, and as well as several projects for The Louvre, he produced statues for different bridges including Zouave for the Pont de l'Alma.
Imperial arms on Pavillon de Rohan
Here you can see a close up photo of the entire pediment group of France sitting below the imperial arms that surround science and work, with the central shield and Imperial coat of arms, plus the allegorical sculpture of Science to the left of this and the allegory of Work to the right, in addition to the allegorical statue of France below these.
South facade Pavillon de Rohan at the Louvre
Yet this image shows the entire south side of Pavillon de Rohan at Musee du Louvre, which faces into the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, and as you can see, there are arched passage ways beneath that will take you out to the opposite side of the pavilion on the Rue de Rivoli, that are all located in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris.
