128 law scale150

Mr Jaggers is a trial lawyer and it seems he has helped and is helping many people who are in trouble. He is very popular! Pip describes some of the people waiting about for Jaggers. He watches as Jaggers begins to interact with them. Jaggers demands to know from two men if they have paid Wemmich. The have. They want to talk with Jaggers but he “won’t have it!” He says, waving them off, “If you say a word to me, I’ll throw up the case.” He then goes to two women and starts up a conversation with them, apparently about their case also.

Here is a scale like those usually used to represent “Law”. Jaggers, on one side, is heavier than all the people on the other.

Here are my two head casts, coming along. I added some features. Moving slowly on this but will be done eventually! I’m thinking the two head casts in Jaggers’s office were made from decapitated heads from criminals that Jaggers had represented. (ICK!)

Hiding from the LAW

Mr Wopsle tells the stranger in The Three Jolly Bargemen that he thinks the suspect in the murder case (that he’d just read out loud from the newspaper) is “Guilty.” The stranger argues with him, making the poor flustered Mr Wopsle look like a fool.

“Innocent until proven guilty,” says the stranger. They are all too eager, sitting in their comfy, cozy warm bar, to assume that any suspect HAS to be guilty.

I’ve created a collage – no paint today! I wanted the word LAW to be kind of kidden and not easily recognizable at first.

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving, here in the States. I will try to do at least one other post before Thursday, but it’s a busy week for me, so we’ll see!
