Pillars of Justice


I found the Pillars of Justice in downtown Toronto near the courthouse. There are actually only eleven jurors standing together, but you can see a space for the twelfth - that's the space for you! I rather like this idea of interactive art. Lots of people like to take their photo with the statue and I think that's a great sign of success for this piece of public art.

Excellent. Very creative. How can one miss the suggestion that "you" are an important part of the judicial process?

Re your question on Ocala DP: The horses are wearing those "blinders" to keep the flies from driving them crazy. Lots of flies! Lordy, lots of flies. The Lord of the Flies lives in Ocala!

If you had a remote control for your camera you could have filled the empty space. The bench is on the waterfront trail in Pickering.

I forgot about that statue. Last time I saw it I was heading to jury selection duty.

I like the idea of this work. I've never been called, but it's part of our civic duty, so I'd go if I was.

I like the art of the art and I like the concept behind the art. Well done, Toronto, and well done, Halcyon, for finding it and showing it to us.

I like art, the way it is done here, with space for people to be part of the art.

It's a fantastic sculpture Halcyon and I agree interactive art is such a good idea. I have done jury duty, not so much fun!

Cool idea. We don't use the same system in Sweden so I will never have to do any civic duty.

I thought they were forks at first. Fork justice!

Other interesting options that have to spend some money, are Ferragamo Bag handbags. Design styles are so great that probably to complete your wardrobe.

Cool sculpture and I too like the idea of the extra space meant for the viewer.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
