Rory O’Brien Let Justice be Done though the Heavens Fall

“Let Justice be Done though the Heavens Fall”, through references to the High Art of Antiquity and the mythology of the Roman Goddess Justitia, demonstrates the flaws in her motifs of equality, impartiality and justice and the consequent fall of the modern Justice System from a perfect form of ‘grace’. The gilded lines of the traditional Japanese art technique of Kintsugi stand in stark contrast to the subjective gaze of the Goddess as her veil of impartiality slips, a promise for the rectification of a system that has the potential to once more be “without corruption, favour, greed, or prejudice”.
