La Gloire by artist Charles Gumery
La Gloire translates in English to The Glory, and in this first close up HD photo you can see the main central figure of a winged female holding a wreath, either of olive leaves or laurel leaves, which have been a symbol of victory, glory, etc, from ancient Greek and Roman times, and made into a circular crown these were given to champions of Olympic games or battles.

Now the pediment called La Gloire was produced by Charles Gumery who was born in Paris in 1827 with a full name of Charles Alphonse Achille Gumery, becoming a student at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and from there a prominent French sculptor who received many public commissions for different statues and sculptures.

Two gilded statues on the Palais Garnier are probably his most recognised works, but Charles Gumery also received a few commissions for The Louvre as well as other tourist attractions in Paris including the Fontaine Saint Michel, being awarded the Legion of Honour in 1867 for his efforts, which was a year after The Glory pediment was in place.

Yet this photograph shows the top section of the Aile de Flore of the Louvre Museum that you can see from the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, and to be more precise as to the location of La Gloire, this is the second pediment from the left hand side of the wing as you are looking up at the facade.
