Le Telegraphie et l’Imprimerie sculpture, Pavillon Colbert
This first HD photo shows a bas relief sculptural decoration surrounding a porthole style window, sometimes referred to as a bullseye, which is located on the Pavillon Colbert facade of the former Palais du Louvre.
Le Telegraphie sculpture by Joseph Michel Ange Pollet
Called Le Telegraphie et l’Imprimerie, in English this translates to The Telegraph and the Printing, which was produced by Joseph Michel Ange Pollet and put in place in 1857, here you can see the left hand side detail representing the Telegraph.
Books on Le l’Imprimerie sculpture by Joseph Michel Ange Pollet
However, this next image shows the allegorical female winged figure with books at her feet, designed to represent Printing, and although born in Italy, having studied to become a sculptor, Joseph Michel Ange Pollet then moved to Paris, France, where he received numerous different commissions for decorations to adorn famous tourist attractions.
The Louvre, Pavillon Colbert, Le Telegraphie et l’Imprimerie Sculpture
In fact, Joseph Michel Ange Pollet was commissioned for no less than six decorative elements to adorn the facades of The Louvre, plus he worked on different churches and other tourist attractions like the Paris Opera House.

So when you are standing in the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Court Napoleon, as you can see in this photograph, Le Telegraphie et l’Imprimerie surrounding the porthole is located to the right hand side of the door on the ground floor level of the Pavillon Colbert.
