The Scales of Justice Mezuzah
#M-13 2000, Aluminum, sterling silver. Height 14.5cm, Width 2.5cm. Signed by the artist.
The Scales of Justice Mezuzah is the first in a series of mezuzahs created for various professions. Sterling silver scales of justice adorn the body of the mezuza. The body of the mezuzah is made of aluminum in a rectangular shape with a highly polished finish, giving the piece a post-modernistic look. By using aluminum, mattiness is kept to a minimum. This underscores the well-known Bauhaus principle of “form follows function” which often influences much of the artist’s creative thought. Each work is signed by the artist.
