Iconography of Justice

Don't miss this interesting article in today's New York Times:
“That Lady With the Scales Poses for Her Portraits”

Yale Law Professors Judith Resnick and Denis Curtis have a new book out which traces justice symbols through the ages:
Representing Justice  (ideas through the centuries and also around the globe)

This book charts how the iconography of justice has both reflected and influenced the development of courts and national governments.

I could see making a joint collaboration with IGSS students and art students who could do a artistic/and or photography exhibit on Justice.
