Golden Tarot of Klimt - study group - justice VIII


so this one card has the most common symbols , like the scale and the sword ,and her eyes closed instead of blindfolded ,

she seems to be a judge of sorts , or that is what I see anyway , not some antropomorfic representation of justice , but an actual judge. a respectfull lawful woman , with dignity and wisdom , she seems pretty rational , and not very into the emotional side of things , she is one to do what must be done reardless of how she may feel about it. her face looks meditative , I think she's remembering something or perhaps going over the facts in order to make a desition.


let's talk a little bit about the painting ; from wikipedia

The Klimt University of Vienna Ceiling Paintings, were a series of paintings made by Gustav Klimt Upon presenting his paintings, Philosophy, Medicine and Jurisprudence, Klimt came under attack for 'pornography' and 'perverted excess' in the paintings. None of the paintings would go on display in the university. In May 1945 all three paintings were destroyed by retreating SS forces.

Jurisprudence was the third of the paintings presented at the eighteenth Secession Exhibition in November 1903. As in the other murals, the central theme is man's conflicted existence.[9] It, too, is laden with anxiety: A condemned man is depicted surrounded by the three female furies: Truth, Justice and Law. They are shown as the Eumenides, punishing the condemned man with an octopus's deadly embrace. It is not surprising that the conflict in Jurisprudence has been seen as "psycho-sexual".
so the painting itslef relates COMPLETLY with the whole card , and I think we now know what the lady was thinking about
