Attack of 238ft Lady Justice

Democrats or Republican aside -- the attack on 238 years of impartial American justice starts with corporate greed. This vintage retro poster pays homage to The Attack of the 50ft Woman when aliens used to be the scariest thing! Weighing the scales of both sides, justice shouldn't feel threatened by our modern world. This work gives importance to the real hero, the optimism of Justice prevailing over obstruction of justice -- and a large Trump tie.
