La Navigation Commerciale Et La Mecanique Sculpture Pavillon Colbert

This first HD photo shows a bas relief, or low relief sculptural decoration surrounding one of the porthole style windows on a wing of the former Palais du Louvre called La Navigation Commerciale et la Mecanique, which in English translates to Commercial Navigation and Mechanics.

La Navigation Sculpture By Joseph Michel Ange Pollet

Designed as an allegory, to the left of the porthole window you can see the female figure designed to represent Commercial Navigation, which was sculpted by Joseph Michel Ange Pollet, who was born in Italy in 1814, yet went to Paris in 1836, then to Belgium and back to Paris, France, where he started exhibiting at the 1846 Salon.

La Mecanique Sculpture By Joseph Michel Ange Pollet

However, this image shows the right hand side sculpture that was designed to represent Mechanics, as you can see from the cogs, etc that are located by the feet of the female allegory, and during the Second Empire Joseph Michel Ange Pollet received numerous commissions for embellishments on different tourist attractions.

In fact, he work for the Palais Garnier Opera House, busts for the Chateau de Compiegne, churches like Saint Eustache along with several statues and sculptures for The Louvre, gaining many medals along the way and being decorated with the Legion of Honour, passing away in Paris in 1870.

Pavillon Colbert With La Navigation Commerciale Et La Mecanique Sculpture

Now as you can see from this photograph showing the lower section of the Pavillon Colbert, there are actually two porthole style windows on the facade either side of the entrance door.

So when you are looking at this wing of the Louvre Museum from the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon, you will find that La Navigation commerciale et la Mecanique is the sculptural decoration to the left hand side on the lower level of this pavilion.
