HD photograph from Fer a Cheval inside Jardin des Tuileries looking north west - Page 178
Located next to the entrance gates to the Jardin des Tuileries on the western side of the gardens by the Place de la Concorde you will come across two equestrian statues that were originally sculpted by Anotoine Coysevox between 1701 and 1702, with this one being to the right hand side as you are facing the square looking out of the gardens.

Initially these were placed at an entrance to the park of the former Chateau de Marly, yet were moved to the entrance to the Tuileries Gardens in 1719, which is where they remained until 1986, when they were moved to within the Musee du Louvre for preservation, and hence what you can see here is one of the two exact copies, or casts of the statue, with this one being called Mercure monte sur Pegase.
