This is one of the rare royal statues that went through the French revolution in 1789 without damage! It was made by sculptor Antoine Coysevox (1640-1720) in 1689 and shows Louis the XIVth, one of the most famous French kings. It can now be seen in the courtyard of the Carnavalet museum (3rd arrondissement) - it's a must go if you come to Paris! - where it has been sitting since 1890.
