The Art - Photography


Images of "Justice" at the Lafayette Courthouse, Louisiana, 2006. I've given a bit of thought to why Justice would be depicted without a brain, and decided the artist must have believed in predetermination and the helplessless of humankind in the face of fate. While beautifully done, the depiction rather looks like the Giant Teacup of Justice wearing a Mardi Gras mask.

By artist Diana Moore, the two heads sitting outside the courthouse are the "Urns of Justice", installed 1999. As urns, the tops of the heads are missing. A 1991 installation of a "Head of Justice" at the Federal Courthouse in Newark, New Jersey has the top of the head intact and facial features much like the Lafayette statues.
