No. 50 The Seven Vices: Injustice

Fresco, 120 x 60 cm
Cappella Scrovegni (Arena Chapel), Padua

The figures of Justice and Injustice are larger than those of the other Virtues and Vices, and occupy a central position on the dado.

Injustice {Iniustitia) is personified by a man who rules in an impenetrable fastness. The consequences of the rule of injustice are abuses, which can be seen in the foreground.
