I imagine this was originally part of a larger statue — maybe even a whole grouping — involving an upraised arm exhorting the brave men and women of France to victory or something in that vein.

Without the context, though, it really looks like the statue should have a speech bubble saying “Oh no you DIDN’T!”

(It’s inside the Arc de Triomphe, up where you can pause to take a breather on your way to the roof.)
