1927: Divine Law

Violet Oakley - Divine Law

Violet Oakley - Divine Law Mural (1927)Beginning in 1902, Violet Oakley spent twenty-five years painting the murals that adorn the Pennsylvania state capitol building in Harrisburg.  The image above is a study for her “Divine Law” mural in the Supreme Court, part of a series illustrating the evolution of law throughout history. The face of truth gazes into the room, the earth below surrounded by stars and planets. The words “DIVINE,” “LAW,” “LOVE,” and “WISDOM” are incorporated into the design. The murals were installed on May 23, 1927. (Sources here, here, and here)
