Lady Justice with Sword Statue
Lady Justice statue shows the Roman Goddess Justicia as a personification of the morality that underlies the legal system. Her she is shown with the scales of justice and the sword symbolic of cutting away injustice.
Since the Renaissance, Justitia has frequently been depicted as a bare-breasted woman carrying a sword and scales, and sometimes wearing a blindfold. The symbolism of the blindfold is that justice is expected to be meted out equally to all who seek her fair decision making.
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.
