The Lady Justice statue ranks as one of the most well known statues in the
world. Although, this statue is not typically attributed to any one famous
sculptor, the fact that it adorns so many of the world’s courthouses has
rendered it one of the more well known sculptures.

While it
goes by many names, the most popular are Lady Justice, Scales of Justice, and
Blind Justice. The statue dates it origins from ancient Greek and Roman times as
the lady represented is Themis, the goddess of justice and law. Well known for
her clear sightedness, she typically holds a sword in one hand and scales in the
other.

The scales
that she holds represent the impartiality with which justice is served and the
sword signifies the power that is held by those making the decision. During the
16th century, artists started showing the lady blindfolded to show that justice
is not subject to influence. From this, the statue earned the name Blind
Justice.

Anazao Galleries is proud to offers these Lady Justice Statues for decorating your home or
office. They remain an especially popular item for decorating the conference
rooms or waiting areas of legal offices.

Artist’s Biography

Sergey Eylanbekov

Sergey
Eylanbekov was born in Russia in 1960. He started to study art at the age of
13, in the acclaimed Moscow School of Fine Arts. At the age of 17, he was
accepted to the Moscow Surikov Academy of Fine Arts, one of the most prominent
art schools in Russia. 

After
six years of study at the Academy and graduating with honor, Sergey was
consistently exhibiting his works and received a number of private and public
commissions. His works were acquired by private collectors in Russia and
Europe. The Russian Ministry of Culture purchased a number of Sergey’s
sculptures for display in museums.
 

In
1989 Sergey moved to the United States, though it meant starting his career in
art over again. After a brief stint working in a Manhattan print shop, Sergey
began working at a company which specialized in commercial reproduction and
mass production of famous classic and contemporary sculpture. At the same time,
Sergey was working as much as possible on his original bronze sculptures,
paintings and drawings, showing them at the various exhibitions.
 

In
the mid ’90’s , as he continued to create and exhibit his bronzes, for several
years Sergey also experimented with casting his works in acrylic. In 2004, the
International Olympic Committee (IOC) chose Sergey’s cast acrylic sculpture
“Five Continents” as the first place winner in Olympic Art and Sport
Contest 2004. In 2002 Sergey’s acrylic sculpture was chosen to commemorate the
2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City.
 

Currently,
Sergey lives on Long Island, New York. He is well-known, received numerous
awards, and continues to create and exhibit his works, many of which can be
found in public and private collections in the United States, Europe and
Russia.
 

Sergey
is a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society and serves on its Board of
Directors.
He
teaches drawing part time at Farmingdale State University of New York.
