Here you can see a statue called Lion et Lionne se Disputant un Sanglier, which was sculpted by Auguste Nicolas Cain and placed on the terrace by a set of steps that leads from the Jardin des Tuileries to the Terrasse des Feuillants, which is on the northern side of the gardens.

Now this terrace was constructed by Andre Le Notre in the 1660s and being wide it became used for cafes and restaurants, however, when Napoleon Bonaparte became Emperor, he ordered the construction of a street he named the Rue de Rivoli.
This new street with its arcade style buildings actually reduced the width of the terrace, but the perspective the landscape artist originally envisioned is still present for people to admire parts of the Tuileries Gardens from an elevated position, as his designs, like the gardens at the Chateau de Versailles were meant to be admired from above.
