Lady Justice
Bronze Sculpture
27.5h x 19w x 13d inches
(69.8 x 48.3 x 33 cm)
“Hellu’s Lady Justice bears a cornucopia of gendered signifiers and mythical allusions. Holding up the scales of justice, they have a long beard, a bared breast with a pierced nipple, stiletto heels, and don a formidable strap-on dildo. By confronting gender stereotypes, this culture-jammed figure stands as evidence of Hellu’s ongoing effort to hack the patriarchal language of justice’s allegorical representations throughout history.”
