Roman Goddess of Justice La Justicia

The Roman Goddess of Justice statue is a personification of the morality that underlies the legal system. Justice is blind in this depiction, symbolizing the ideal of meting out justice that is fair to all who seek it.

Since the Renaissance, Justitia has frequently been depicted as a bare-breasted woman carrying a sword and scales, and sometimes wearing a blindfold. Her modern iconography offers the attributes of several goddesses who embodied Right Rule for Greeks and Romans, blending Roman blindfolded Fortuna with Hellenistic Greek Tyche.

Justitia's attributes parallel those of the Hellenic deity Themis, the embodiment of divine order, law and custom, in her aspect as the personification of the divine rightness of law.
