Justice, relieved of her sword by Virtue, and of her scales by Concord. Thomas Stirling Lee (1857-1916). 1882-1901. Istrian stone. St. George's Hall, Liverpool. Now wearing dignified robes, Justice hands her sword to Concord, suggesting that its use is no longer required. Her work has been fulfilled: she is exchanging the sword for a palm branch.
