A mild steel abstraction of Lady Justice. Her metaphorical attributes have become physical extensions of her body. Her blindfold curls through the front of her face; her sword, bearing the year 2017, twists and curls into her leg; her balance (with one cup full of water, and the other with mulch) swings back and forth precariously, attached at her wrist. The rust represents the malleable nature of morality over time. It was traditionally blacksmith forged. Her limbs and body are formed out of twisting rods and "rocks" made of the same material as all her tools.
