This first HD photo shows a statue called Agriculture, which was produced in marble back in 1879 as an allegory with a female figure holding a sheaf of wheat or corn in order to depict the agricultural industry.
Marble Agriculture statue by Jean Louis Schroeder
Now here you can see a close up photo of the Agriculture statue, which was produced by Jean Louis Schroeder, who was born in Paris in 1828 and studied under Francois Rude to become a French sculptor.

Jean Louis Schroeder received many commissions including several for the former Palais du Louvre, plus others for tourist attractions such as the Hotel de Ville, many churches like Saint Eustache along with busts and portrait statues, still presenting works at the Salons right up until a year before passing away in 1898.
