This first HD photo shows a statue called La Paix, which in English translates to The Peace, and made of stone after an initial plaster model had been approved for one of the exterior decorations on the former Palais du Louvre, this was put in place in 1857.

La Paix Statue By Joseph Brian

Now The Peace statue was sculpted by Joseph Brian, who was born in 1801 and studied under Francois Joseph Bosio to become a French sculptor, as did his younger brother, so he became known as Brian the Elder, with the two of them furthering studies at the French Academy in Rome and often working together on different projects.
