Judicial aesthetics

This photo accompanied the NY Times story reporting that South Africa's highest court had ruled that the nation's constitution guarantees a right to gay marriage. Good news on the human rights front, of course, but what fascinates me is the way the chamber is decorated. Those paintings, or hangings, or whatever they are, are awesome. I can't decide how to feel about the brickwork. I mean, I like dissonance as much as the next guy, but there's something to be said for a well appointed wall.
