Lady Justice, stands atop the Old Bailey (The Central Criminal Court). She holds aloft the scales (balancing the case) and the double edged sword which can be wielded against either party. Many statues of Justice are blindfolded to represent the impartiality of justice, but not this one.

You might think that Nelson on his column is the highest statue in London - but it is actually Lady Justice.
