L'Astronomie sculpture by Gabriel Jules Thomas
This first HD photo shows a sculpture designed as an allegory, which is called L'Astronomie, which is probably logical when you can see a young child holding a celestial globe, therefore relating to Astronomy, which was sculpted by Gabriel Jules Thomas and put in place back in 1878.
Female figure L'Astronomie sculpture Aile de Marsan
Gabriel Jules Thomas was born in Paris in 1824, and following in his fathers footsteps he became a French sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome in 1848, which led to numerous commissions for different statues and monuments, along with sculptures for tourist attractions like the Palais Garnier, and several for the Louvre Museum including L'Astronomie pediment.

Yet unfortunately, as you can tell from this close up photograph, the face of the female figure along with her right hand of the statue are missing, although it still looks like Gabriel Jules Thomas sculpted her in such a way, as though she had been studying a book and then looking up to the stars.

However, this image shows the top part of the facade called the Aile de Marsan, which is a long wing of The Louvre that has numerous different statues and sculptures located on it. So as you are standing in the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, the Astronomy pediment is the very first one to the left hand side.
