Today’s photos feature the statues in front of the Rayburn House Office Building. The building is a short walk from the Law Library’s home in the Madison Building, past the Cannon and Longworth House Office Buildings. According to the Architect of the Capitol’s website, these two ten-foot marble statues were created by C. Paul Jennewein and are called Spirit of Justice and Majesty of Law.
Once you arrive at your destination, you are greeted with Spirit of Justice, on the left.
And Majesty of Law, on the right.
