When I first visited The Louvre, I went like most, to experience the beauty and history. However, when I entered one of the rooms I looked out the window and saw this marvelous statue bathed in overhead light. A lucky find!

From my 'Chiaroscuro' collection.
In my 'Architecture and Scenic' collection.
