Lady Justice is a common sight on most courthouses and legal institutions. The statue dates it origins from ancient Roman times as the lady represented is Themis, the goddess of justice and law. There may be regional variations, however certain fundamentals are constant: she carries a sword, scales for weighing, and usually wears a blindfold. She is dressed in a Greco-Roman toga or tunica, in the tradition of classical goddesses.
The scales represent the impartiality with which justice is served and the sword signifies the power that is held by those making the decision. During the 16th century, artists started showing the lady blindfolded to show that justice is not subject to influence. From this, the statue earned the name Blind Justice. This replica is made of designer resin and will make a great gift for law offices or people who study the law.
