Lady Justice Seated with Scales Marble Finish Statue by Pacific Gift Home Decor
Balancing the scales of truth and fairness dates back to the Goddess Maat, and later Isis, of ancient Egypt. The Hellenic deities Themis and Dike were later goddesses of justice. Themis was the embodiment of divine order, law, and custom, in her aspect as the personification of the divine rightness of law. However, a more direct connection is to Themis' daughter Dike, who was portrayed carrying scales
Justitia is most often depicted with a set of scales typically suspended from her right hand, upon w hich she measures the strengths of a case's support and opposition. She is also often seen carrying a double-edged sword in her left hand, symbolizing the power of Reason and Justice, which may be wielded either for or against any party.
This Lady Justice statue is the perfect gift for new lawyers or for a law office. This seated Lady Justice holds the scales in one hand, sword in the other. Sword and scales comes detached and slight assembly required.
