The symbolic mallet used by judges to keep order in the courtroom is perhaps the largest gavel in the world. It was created in 2008 by Andrew Scott and funded by the Ohio State Bar Foundation. Over 170 works of art are displayed at the Ohio Judicial Center, but this one constructed entirely of stainless steel is the most expensive. Like most works of art its imposing size and heavy material are ironic - a statement about the overreaching and overbearing powers of the judiciary.
