Dreamy images of the Justice

A long nose as lying Pinocchio or a cheerful monster
for a railings (of Justice) impassable?

Symbolic figures for a more and more mistreated Justice.

A popular Justice, locked into a railings in the grotesque and lunar faces. Such appears the Magistrates' court of Mulhouse, with which I have already handled these decorations in other pages (in french).

However, in this time of at the beginning of year 2016 when the French and/or European society guarantees more and more for the arbitrary power through laws of exception and other states of emergency, see again in Mulhouse the way our forefathers wanted to illustrate and to surround a building dedicated to the Justice, seemed me to have to be to show, to re-show. This cheerful and monstrous side of these wrought iron characters has a side which a little reminds me in said by Villon, such ' The ballad of the hung ' ...

../...

If we call you brothers, you should not
Have disdain, although we are killed
By justice. However you know
That all the people have no well sat back up spirit.
Excuse us, because we are dead,
With the son of the Virgin Mary,
So that his favor is not dried up for us,
And what he protects us from the infernal lightning.
We died, that nobody torments us,
But ask God whom all wants us to absolve !

.../...

 

The magistrates' court of Mulhouse was finished in 1902 by the architect of Strasbourg Joseph Müller. The whole building is classified, but not in particular the railings of surrounding wall, reproduced partially here.

Handle of the front door of the Magistrates' court - © Norbert Pousseur

The main entrance of the court: a plate of entrance decorated with branches
of ivy and a handle hindered by the lianas of this creeper !
Is it the evil which tries to hinder the Justice, which is symbolized here,
or the artist wanted to illustrate the difficulties finding itself
in the jungle of the laws?

Railings giving onto the street, with its volutes - © Norbert Pousseur

Here also, little in echo with the ornamentations of the front door, the railings
of wrought iron intertwined by volutes imitating creepers.

Dragon of the front gate - © Norbert Pousseur

The railings of the door giving onto the court of entrance is guarded
by a couple of dragon, here the right head.
Is the Justice a dragon, or she must be defended by threatening faces ?

Golden face of wrought iron in the long run beard - © Norbert Pousseur

Face, doubtless satiric, in the long run beard.
Derisive face of a judge or a litigant?...
To note the completely remarkable work of these iron stalks which guzzle
the one in the other one and cross, to finish by this golden face.

Small monster of justice - © Norbert Pousseur

Small monster grimacing with the railings of access to the courtyard.
The sneering justice ?

Gremlin blower - © Norbert Pousseur

It is a lunar face or a small gremlin blowerr, hair and the tail in the wind ?
To dream about the Justice ?

Lunar face with tail - © Norbert Pousseur

Almost the same hairy lunar face as above, but seen so that appears
the perfection of the work, with so much sharpness and precision
as what is asked the justice.

Peck on the tail - © Norbert Pousseur

Other figure of the wire netting of defense of the Magistrates' court :
Like a gallinacée who bites the tail, like that sometimes at the justice !

Belfry of the Magistrates' court - © Norbert Pousseur

The belfry of the magistrates' court of Mulhouse,
raised in the sky, for ever more Justice ?
