Images of the
Goddess of Justice

goddess of justice image

Justice holding her scales and sword is a familiar image. Remember that she is not blind, only wearing a blindfold. I use the version above on my homepage. But there are many different versions of the image of the Goddess of Justice that can be found on the internet, as listed in the links below. To avoid pop-up ads, you may wish to open the links using the right button on your mouse and clicking on 'open new window.' My favorites include the statues in Liberia and Khazakhstan, a relief sundial in France, the Borland graphic, the neon light image in Nevada, a painting of sleeping Justice (lost link), paintings by Klimt and Max, Baltimore's fish and Beavercreek's Beaver, the Ortega brand scales, and the California seal tattoo.
