Summary[edit]

Description
English: Frederick Dielman (1847-1935) designed this mosaic representing Law for the United States Library of Congress, and it was subsequently manufactured in Venice, Italy.[1] A young woman on a marble throne holds a sword in one hand to chastise the guilty and a palm branch in the other hand to reward the meritorious. A glory surrounds her head, and on her breast is the aegis of Minerva, signifying she is clad in the armor of righteousness and wisdom. Other portions of this large mosaic are omitted from this image. This mosaic indicates not only the judicial but the legislative side of law; typical symbols of justice are less conspicuous or omitted, and the woman has a freer air of command.[2]
