About Christine's Project
“A Burst of Butterflies,” is a digital illustration depicting my modern interpretation of justice. Traditionally, Lady Justice was a white woman with ancient Roman origins. Her blindfold represented her objectivity, implying that justice should always be applied with impartiality. A person’s race, ethnicity, religion, or socio-economic status should not be a determining factor. In my illustration, I reinterpreted Lady Justice as a woman of color because now more than ever, it is important to show that black and brown lives matter. Unfortunately, justice is not served without bias in this day and age. Humanity still has a long way to go before it can achieve truth, kindness, and equality on a mass scale.
