Frederick William Pomeroy
1905-6, erected in October 1906
Gilt bronze on an iron framework
On the dome of E. W. Mountford's Central Criminal Court, the Old Bailey, London
The gleaming statue of Justice on the Old Bailey, with her spiked crown, sword and scales, must be Pomeroy's most looked-at work. The figure itself is 3.65m high, and the whole sculpture, including the globe beneath her feet and the raised sword, is over 6m high and weighs about 22 tonnes (see Ward-Jackson 63).
