This amazing frieze can be found inside the Circuit Courthouse in Annapolis, Maryland. This was erected as a memorial to honor those lawyers who fought and died in the “Great War.” To me, this depiction brings to mind the famous painting by Jacques-Louis David, Oath of the Horatii. A pre-Revolution work of art, the theme is loyalty to the state, without regard to clan or clergy. There is a Latin inscription at the bottom, but it is too faded for me to read. Any thoughts? A translation would be greatly appreciated.
I’ve resized all of these photos so that they are now 5 by 7 inches- the perfect size for a postcard. I respectfully submit them to Guest Host Anvica’s Gallery for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #159: Postcards.
