La Victoire pediment sculpture N facade Aile de Flore, Louvre
This first HD photo shows a pediment sculpture called La Victoire, which is an allegory depicting Victory, with a winged female figure holding a laurel wreath, which has been a symbol of victory from ancient times, even being used within Greece to crown the winners of their Olympic games, but Romans used this symbol to crown a victorious commander.

Yet this next photograph shows a close of the main figure holding the laurel wreath with a young child holding a shield, which puts more emphasis on the Roman use of the laurel wreath for La Victoire allegorical sculpture, which was produced by Jean Joseph Perraud.

Now Jean Joseph Perraud was born within the Jura area of France in 1819, yet he was awarded a grant, or scholarship, to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, and during the Second Empire he received numerous public commissions for statues and sculptures on many famous tourist attractions in Paris.

Not only did Jean Joseph Perraud sculpt The Victory, but he also received a few other orders for the former Palais du Louvre, plus you can discover other statues at tourist attractions around Paris such as within the Jardin Marco Polo and the Musee Galliera, on the Gare du Nord and the Palais Garnier, within the Musee d'Orsay, etc.

So, located by the roof line on the north facade of the Aile de Flore, you will be able to see The Victory pediment from the courtyard of The Louvre called the Cour du Carrousel, which is positioned above a window by the third level balustrade to the far right hand side of this wing.
