Justizia

The story behind our picture read here:

The concept of justice as a person has deep and branched roots in the history of art up to the early times: the deities Maat in ancient Egypt, Dike in ancient Greece and Aequitas in Roman antiquity. In the Middle Ages the iconography of Justitia changed. She is now represented, first as a one-eyed or blind virgin, then with her eyes blindfolded. Her attributes are a executioner's sword and scales, dressed in judicial severity, or naked, only covered with veils, as in Lukas Cranach the Elder.

Our picture shows the allegorical representation of Justitia, one of the 14 relief panels of the right wing of the
south portal door (on the bronze door there are 14 squares each on the bronze door leaves) of the Baptistery of San Giovanni in Florence, created by Andrea Pisano in the years 1330-1336 and cast under the assistance of the Venetian Leonardo d'Avanzo, a bronze casting specialist. Together with the allegory of wisdom, it forms the lowest row of the 3.5 tonne gate wing. 

This monumental work by Andrea Pisano has, in the truest sense of the word, an extremely "eventful" past.
For 680 years it was admitted to the Baptistery, 89 years of which were on the eastern side, until it was moved to the southern side in 1425 to give way to Lorenzo Ghiberti's "Gate of Paradise". In 1943, like the north portal and the east portal of Ghiberti, it was brought to safety from the bombardments in Florence, as well as after the flood disaster of November 1966. 

On the night of April 15 to 16, 2016, the masterpiece of the most famous Italian sculptor of the fourteenth century left its ancestral place forever and, after three years of restoration by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, from December 9, 2019, found its final place in a special display case in the middle of the other two portals of the Baptistery in the Sala del Paradiso of the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.

1) Scope

1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of Stephan Huslik (hereinafter referred to as "Seller") shall apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") with the Seller with respect to the goods presented by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to unless otherwise agreed.

1.2 These GTC apply to contracts for the delivery of vouchers accordingly, unless otherwise expressly agreed.

1.3 Consumers within the meaning of these GTC are any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that cannot be attributed primarily to their commercial or independent professional activity. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity which, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of its commercial or self-employed professional activity.


2) Conclusion of a contract

2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent any binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the customer.

2.2 The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and having completed the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the order process. Furthermore, the customer may also submit the offer to the seller by telephone, e-mail or online contact form.

2.3 The seller can accept the customer's offer within five days,

  • by sending the customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is authoritative in this respect, or
  • by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in so far as the receipt of the goods by the customer is authoritative, or
  • by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.

If several of the above-mentioned alternatives are available, the contract is concluded at the time when one of the above-mentioned alternatives occurs first. The period of time for acceptance of the offer begins on the day following the dispatch of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the seller does not accept the customer's offer within the aforementioned period of time, this shall be deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.

2.4 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is stored by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e. g. e-mail, fax or letter) together with the present General Terms and Conditions of Business. In addition, the contract text is archived on the seller's website and can be called up by the customer free of charge via his password-protected customer account by entering the corresponding login data, provided that the customer has created a customer account in the seller's online shop before sending his order.

2.5 Before placing an order through the seller's online order form, the customer can detect possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. The magnification function of the browser can be an effective technical tool for better recognition of input errors, which can be used to enlarge the display on the screen. The customer can correct his or her entries within the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he or she clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.

2.6 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.

2.7 The order processing and contacting usually takes place via e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him/her for order processing is correct, so that the e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer has to ensure that all e-mails sent by the seller or third parties charged with the order processing can be delivered.

 

3) Right to withdrawal

3.1 Consumers are basically entitled to a right of withdrawal.

3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.


4) Prices and terms of payment

4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices. Value added tax is not shown, because the seller is a small entrepreneur within the meaning of the VAT law. If applicable, additional delivery and shipping costs are stated separately in the respective product description.

4.2 In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may be incurred in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money by credit institutions (e. g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import levies or taxes (e. g. customs duties). Such costs may be incurred in connection with the transfer of funds even if the delivery is not made to a country outside the European Union, but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.

4.3 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop.

4.4 If advance payment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed a later due date.

4.5 If you choose the method of payment Invoice purchase, the purchase price is due after the goods have been delivered and invoiced. In this case, the purchase price is to be paid within 7 (seven) days from receipt of the invoice without deduction, unless otherwise agreed. The seller reserves the right to offer the payment method purchase on account only up to a certain order volume and to refuse this payment method if the specified order volume is exceeded. In this case, the seller will inform the customer in his payment information in the online shop of a corresponding payment restriction.

5) Delivery and shipping conditions

5.1 Unless otherwise agreed, goods shall be delivered by way of dispatch to the delivery address specified by the customer. The delivery address stated in the seller's order processing is decisive for the transaction.

5.2 If the transport company sends the shipped goods back to the seller because it was not possible to deliver them to the customer, the customer shall bear the costs of unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer effectively exercises his right of revocation, if he is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery, or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service, unless the seller had notified him of the service for a reasonable period of time in advance.

5.3 For logistical reasons, it is not possible to collect the goods yourself.

5.4 Vouchers are provided to the customer as follows:

  • by download
  • by e-mail
  • postal

 

6) Retention of title

If the seller enters into advance payment, he reserves the right of ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.

 

7) Liability for defects (warranty)


7.1
If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of statutory liability for defects shall apply.

7.2 The customer is requested to complain to the deliverer of delivered goods with obvious transport damages and to inform the seller of this. If the customer fails to do so, this shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.

8) Redeeming gift vouchers

8.1 Vouchers, which can be purchased via the seller's online shop (hereinafter referred to as "gift vouchers"), can only be redeemed in the seller's online shop, unless otherwise specified in the voucher.

8.2 Gift vouchers and remaining balance of gift vouchers are redeemable until the end of the third year after the year of purchase. Remaining credit balances shall be credited to the customer until the expiry date.

8.4 Several gift vouchers can be redeemed with one order.

8.5 Gift vouchers can only be used for the purchase of goods and not for the purchase of further gift vouchers.

8.6 If the value of the gift voucher is not sufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the seller may be chosen to settle the difference.

8.7 The balance of a gift voucher is neither paid out in cash nor interest-bearing.

8.8 The gift voucher is transferable. The seller can make payment to the respective owner, who redeems the gift voucher in the online shop of the seller, with exempting effect. This does not apply if the seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the non-authorization, legal incapacity or the lack of representative authority of the respective owner.

 

9) Applicable law

The laws of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to all legal relations between the parties to the exclusion of the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall apply only to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.

 

10)  Alternative dispute resolution


10.1
The European Commission provides an online dispute resolution platform on the Internet at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

This platform serves as a contact point for out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.

10.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
