Remember W.C. Stephenson said in the 1953 article (from your website) in the CCC Times:

________________________
"Stephenson said he made the clay model for the statue here in Beeville (note by Paul Gerdes - 1708 North Madison, now razed) and sent it to St. Louis where it was cast in copper (note by Paul Gerdes; the statue is actually made from zinc - and was painted with a coating that resembled copper at the time, or nearly as it appears today. I don't think he ever knew it was made of zinc and not copper). The company that completed the figure asked and got Stephenson's permission to make copies of his work. There may be other "Stephenson Justices" scattered about the country, but he never took the time to check and see where they were placed."

Does this look familiar to you? I have friends in Guanajuato, MX, who sent this to me.....

Both the husband and wife are architects. I'd told them that Grandpa Stephenson was an artist, sculptor, architect, musician and actor.....Sandra wanted to see some of his works, so I sent all the pix I had, plus the websites which relate to him.....

Well, it turns out that there is a theater in Gto. that has the nine muses in it.....this is a picture of one of them.....when they saw Grandpa's statue of Justice, they couldn't believe their eyes. I don't know when this statue was cast, or where; it does resemble Justice remarkably......even to the crown of stars......

Let me hear your words on this......when was Justice done?
