The Lady Justice statue ranks as one of the most well known statues in the world. Although, this statue is not typically attributed to any one famous sculptor, the fact that it adorns so many of the world’s courthouses has rendered it one of the more well known sculptures. While it goes by many names, the most popular are Lady Justice, Scales of Justice, and Blind Justice. The statue dates it origins from ancient Greek and Roman times as the lady represented is Themis, the goddess of justice and law. Well known for her clear sightedness, she typically holds a sword in one hand and scales in the other. The scales that she holds represent the impartiality with which justice is served and the sword signifies the power that is held by those making the decision. During the 16th century, artists started showing the lady blindfolded to show that justice is not subject to influence. We have created this larger sized sculpture of the blind lady justice of a durable resin and hand painted in a bronze patina. If you wish it to go outside please spray with a clear coat once a year to preserve finish.
