Justice tempered by mercy, originally uploaded by bhamjay.

"Seek wisdom to temper justice with compassion". The concept is that the Angel of Mercy is seen encouraging the Lady of Justice. She is staying the sword of justice to keep it from being used too swiftly, tempering it with compassion. Is this correct jurisprudence?

The sculptor is Glynn Acree from Roswell
