The issue of scale is important to both the courthouse as well as to Diagonal Frieze. The size of the architectural elements inside the courthouse instill a sense of confidence that justice is larger than humanity and we will be fairly served.  The sculpture, while recalling a classical frieze, is quite exaggerated in its scale suggesting perhaps that it may have come from a monumental structure.  This placement maintains a hitorical aura, yet invites viewing from a more intimate vantage point.
