Recently I have spent many hours at Stanislaus County Superior Court in Modesto, California.
I am the type of person the likes to just sit and observe and here’s one of the interesting things that I recently observed looking down from the second floor where the overhang is looking down at the first floor.
Here is a picture of something I what thought was extremely interesting:
This is a picture of lady justice that is perched in the lobby of the first floor to the left of the metal detectors as you come in.
Here is the justice placard and what it says just below it:
There are three things that I notice about this lady justice statute:
- the scales of justice are not balanced
- lady justice is not blindfolded
- and it is disgustingly dirty all over the top of it which is kind of symbolic in a way.
Interesting bit of symbolism it seems these days.
