The Caryatids

I've always liked these kind of statues: Caryatids. As wikipedia says, they're "sculpted female figures serving as an architectural support". These ones mark the entrance to the Chilean Supreme Court, in the Court Palace I showed you yesterday.

its realliy impressive...it seems the buildings for courts are similar everywhere somehow refering to the roman/greek roots of our recent legal systems. At least in Budapest the athmosphere is similar.
