  • What we call the counters of the Louvre are 3 vaulted to arcades doors that allow to pass the bridge of the carousel to the inside of the Louvre across the dock François Mitterrand right bank of the Seine. These counters are integrated in a large Pavilion richly decorated with such allegories on the front. There are the "genius of Arts" riding a horse, bronze sculpture on the central pediment. This Pavilion is framed by two side buildings topped by a roof "A La Mansart" and wearing of two lanterns. The Pavilion was renovated between 1861 and 1869, and as it should be, "Napoléon III" is in the spotlight, under the direction of the architect Lefuel. Of each side of the main arch, you can see two allegorical statues in stone with "Navy" and "The Merchant Marine" the perspective that we see with in the foreground with the bridge of the carousel and its two obelisks with "Windows" in the background is quite remarkable.

  • Cour Carree,on of the main courtyards of the Louvre Palace in Paris.It was gradually built, as the medieval Louvre castle was progressively demolished in favour of a Renaissance palace.Nice Square with a fontain in the middle.It is a place where often the big names in fashion industry are making fashion exhibitions.
  • I had a full day inside the museum, and for two more days I needed to see the whole museum. In addition, there are works in Louvre that the man wants to watch for hours. The monuments of Mesopotamia and Achaemenid, Egyptian civilization, Greek art and Italian paintings are all unique.
