Oakland County, Michigan Lady Justice

The original statue was constructed of thin sheets of zinc metal plate and fabricated by the now-defunct W.H. Mullins Sheet Metal Statuary and Cornice Works Co. of Salem, Ohio. It was recast in bronze by the Fine Arts Sculpture Centre, Inc. of Clarkston, substantially increasing its weight from 100 pounds to 365 pounds. The 9,200-pound base upon which Lady Justice sits is Georgia white marble and taken from the same quarry that supplied the marble facing for the court house in 1960.
