The divine Justice

Posted in Digital Painting with tags , on September 11, 2010 by kyralhills

I’ve got to work this weekend on what I hope will be one of my 12 D&C pieces for final year. I decided to use Tarot cards meanings as inspiration for some of my compositions. As follows, my first inspiration, Justice:

Justice (La Justice)
The Daughter of the Lords of Truth; The Ruler of the Balance

Card Number: 11
Key Number: 22
Rulership: Libra
Hebrew Letter: Lamed
Translation: Ox, Goad (Noun) to Teach or Instruct (Verb)
Numerical Value: 12

Divinatory meaning
Upright – Amicable and favourable resolution of conflicts.  Triumph over bigotry and prejudice.  Legal action.  Litigation. Contracts.  Settlement.  Divorce.  Sometimes marriage depending upon the other cards and normally only when marriage contracts, legal or financial documents are a necessary part of the intended union.  Clarity. Fairness. Arbitration. A straightforward choice.  Judgement.
Ill Dignified or Reversed – Injustice.  Inequality and bias.  Separations not yet ratified or legalised.  Delay. imbalance.  Confusion surrounding legal or tax affairs.  Complicate negotiations.  unfair or delayed judgement.

After some sketches and deliberations I came up with this:

Used a pose reference from this great stock resource on deviantart:
