My World - Lady Justice, Salzburg
Many of you might be familiar with the famous statue of Lady Justice. She has been the symbol of right and wrong since the early Greeks.
While doing some research on this subject, I found many depictions of Lady Justice. The iconic figure is often depicted blindfolded, holding a sword with scales but the one that I've encountered is so wonderfully different.
Unlike many representations of Lady Justice, this statue is portrayed with wings, wears no blindfold, holds the scales of justice while stomping on the devil into the fiery pits of hell. I absolutely love the modern representation of the statue although the devil looks kinda creepy to me. The inspiring lady figure faces hundreds of visitors who make their way around the streets of Judengasse daily and it's hard to pass by this statue without noticing it.
She wonderfully represents fairness, balance and justice of the law in her own classy way. I hope she would continue to seek the truth for justice.
That's My World
