Description Representations of the Lady of Justice in the Western tradition occur in many places and at many times; frequently adorning courthouses and courtrooms. She sometimes wears a blindfold, more so in Europe, but more often she appears without one. She usually carries a sword and scales, almost always draped in flowing robes, is mature but not old. She symbolizes the fair and equal administration of the law, without corruption, avarice, prejudice, or favor. I found this beautiful statue of Lady Justice in a cemetery in Henderson, Texas.

From her home base in Beckville, Texas, she finds that the natural, nostalgic and sometimes rustic environment to be her inspiration.
