SYMBOLISM

Blind Justice is seated, draped in cloaks whose complexity illustrate the difficult nature of Her task.

Her posture is defiant and self-assured.

She holds close a set of canopic jars, symbolizing the heart and soul that must go into the pursuit of truth and justice.

The mask at Her feet represents the theatre that thrives within the arena that is the courtroom, where passion and oratory intertwine truths and deceptions as disparate goals and agendas are pursued.

The books represent the laws of man and the learning that defines our humanity and the reasoning that is ultimately our salvation.

An intense play of light and dark illustrates the ever-changing ways in which the tangible and abstract can be seen.  Shadows are the obvious dark side; bright reflection is the resolution — however fleeting — when Justice is served.
