One of the statues in the Tuileries Gardens.
Work on the statue made by Ambrogio Parisi began in 1688 and is based on an ancient statue that was in the Capitoline Museums in Rome. Work on the statue continued until 1694. The statue left Rome only in 1715, and went through many incarnations until it was found in one of the antiquities warehouses of the Louvre Museum in 1800, and then it was decided to place it in the Tuileries Gardens.
The statue is made of marble and is 3 meters high.

The statue shows Julius Caesar (100 BC - 44 BC), perhaps the most famous emperor of the Roman Republic.
who conquered many territories, and crowned himself as the sole ruler until he was murdered by the senator Brutus (the sentence "Et tu, Brute?" (You too Brutus) from Shakespeare’s play became an image for severe betrayal by a close and loved person).
