The Bombay High Court

A splendid Gothic revival building designed by a General Fuller of the Royal engineers (perhaps his only major architectural design), the High Court was built with local black basalt during the late nineteenth century. The chambers are surrounded by Venetian style galleries which are decorated with exuberant carvings of monkeys with scales of justice, foxes wearing barristers' clothes, pigs, tigers and birds cavorting in petrified jungles. The stone masons were unknown local artisans, who were given a free hand.
