This statue/fountain is great to stop by and see if you like roadside attractions. It is right beside the River and COSI. It's worth walking over to see.

I liked it a lot and it was beautiful at sunset. It’s right by the river and all the other cool stuff in the arena district

The gavel is impressive and it certainly stands out but you have to go in to the Supreme Court Building that it sits in front of. That is the main attraction.

I could see this from my window in my hotel room across the street. The Gavel is next to the State of Ohio Supreme Court and as it suggests, The Court is in Session!

It was worth going to see. I wouldn't make a special trip there for it but since we were nearby it was worth it.
