clear braille on polymer
6 x 6 in. | $300

Lady Justice is a symbol of impartiality in our judicial system. Standing stoically with a scale in one hand and a sword in the other, she is blindfolded representing that power, status, or money has no influence. A standard braille sign becomes repurposed by altering its function. The art serves as a memorial to how privilege benefits some while persons of color continue to pay the ultimate price for sheer existence. Citizens must not blindly follow, but question, organize and demand the highest standards preserving truth and justice.
