Little Sanctuary (WC2)
West Porch of Middlesex Guildhall
Henry C. Fehr
Above the porch is a gothic niche with an allogerical statue of Justice (or Truth), a blindfolded woman with a lamp. The doorway is flanked by two smaller allegorical statues:
Reason, calm and thoughtful, firmly grasping the sword of the intellect.
Passion, ensnared in vines of passion flowers, her hands held to her throat in a gesture of panic.
Henry Charles Fehr FRBS (Forest Hill, London, 1867 - London 1940), English sculptor (
