The Latin term ‘ipso facto’ translates as meaning by that very fact or act : as an inevitable result. In creating this girleen I had in my mind’s eye the marble sculptures that are often placed outside law courts in the cities. I’m sure I’ve seen one somewhere that has a blindfold over the eyes – blind justice. Sometimes the law baffles me – what justice?
