The bronze sculpture is of Lady Justice (Roman goddess of Justice) who
is the symbolic personification of the moral force in judicial
systems. As anciently depicted, the blindfolded Lady Justice, is seen
balancing the scales of truth and fairness from her left hand, holding
a sword, while stepping on a book and a snake that coils around her
feet. The scales, represent truth and fairness and measures the
strength of a case's support and opposition. The blindfold, represents
objectivity, in that justice is (or should be) meted out objectively
without biases. The sword, symbolizes the power of reason and justice,
which may be wielded either for or against any party. The book
represents history; signifying to stand against wrongdoings or with
the good doings of the past. The snake symbolizes hatred hence the
foot that stops it from getting its grip. She was captured using the
age-old method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina
finish. She is mounted upon a black marble base with the artist
Mayer's signature.

Ernst Mayer (24 June 1796- 21 January 1844) was a German sculptor of
Classicism. He was a pupil of Antonio Isopi and worked for Leo von
Klenze, mainly in München where he became professor of sculpting at
the polytechnical school in 1830.
