- The Image
- Two separate images of balance are made by the scales in the foreground and the peacock feathers. The scales hang from an invisible holder, unchanging, the cosmic balls suspended above the pans. This signifies that Justice always exists in the universe as a perfect principle. The feathers exist in a much more precarious balance; a breath of wind would disrupt them. In the world of ordinary experience, Justice often seems remote. The feathers appear rooted in a tree trunk, suggesting that spirit does not exist apart from nature. Their "eyes" signify seeing our own emotions.
