This first HD photo shows the top pediment on the Aile Lemercier, which is called Victoire et Abonance, which in English translates to Victory and Abundance that shows two allegorical winged female figures each side of a shield, with the one to the left holding a laurel wreath that was traditionally given to a victor or winner of a contest.
Yet here you can see a close up of the allegorical relief sculpture, which was produced by Philippe Laurent Roland who was born in 1746 and entered the workshop of Augustin Pajou in order to become a French sculptor with his first project being for the opera of the Palais de Versailles.
Although he was not able to participate in the Prix de Rome competition Philippe Laurent Roland saved enough money to travel to Italy and spend five years studying there, before returning to Paris where he received many commissions for tourist attractions like the Chateau de Fontainebleau and the former Palais du Louvre, including this sculpture of Victoire et Abonance.
However, this photograph shows the entire middle section of the Aile Lemercier with the top pediment sculpture of Victory and Abundance that was put in place in 1806, and you would need to be standing the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour Carree in order to see this ornate facade.
