  • The source of justice is one of the five that Laurent Perroud made in the middle of the 16TH century for the city of Solothurn – the other four are those of Samson and those of Saints Ours, Mauricio and Jorge –. Her image is classic: a blindfolded woman holding a sword in her right hand and a balance on the left. Under it, also on the capital, four figures representing four rulers who must – or should – be subdued: a magistrate, the pope, the emperor and a sultan, or the Great Turk. All this in a typology of source typical of the Renaissance Switzerland, of which is good representative its author, Laurent Perraud, sculptor also of sources-and other works-in Neuchâtel, Delémont or Lausanne.
