The Figure of Justice

The figure of Justice is one of the most recognized legal symbols in the architecture of the Supreme Court Building. A small figure of Justice with a blindfold, symbolizing impartiality, appears in the sculpture Contemplation of Justice to the left of the main steps and also in the base of the marble lampposts in front of the building. Justice also appears without a blindfold in one of the panels of the Courtroom frieze.
