The ideal of Justice confronts the edifice of Justice. Thirteen meters in height and nearly as wide at the base the tripodal form is a structure of great strength and integrity capable of supporting the dynamic load of three, twelve-meter long, movable arms weighing one metric ton each. Suspended twelve meters in the air these are the principles suspended from the framework of Justice. Even a child, the most vulnerable member of a just society, is able to move these great weights.
