Being curious for details of the recent BNP success (btw, they gained less voices than on previous elections in 2004, but labours sector’s apathy made it possible) I saw the following banner on their website:
As you can see Lady Justice eyes are disclosured. Quite self-explaning, I guess, but this is not actually the thing I want to talk about.
I thought before that the Highest Court of Russia featuring Iustitia who is not blindfolded is an outstanding oddity:
But when I rushed to Google to search for BNP’s corrupted justice mascot suddenly I discovered that it’s a common occurence to sculp punishing goddess with an abitity to see us people. Also the first blindfold appeared on the statue only in XVI century. What a whack!
All I can say is that I was a bit more friendly to the world around before knowing it.
P.S. Still Russian Iustitia got her style bearing shield instead of sword but I’m confused with the interpretation.
