Best Answer

No, she is not. In the original sculpture of Themis (or Justitia), now known as Lady Justice, she did not have anything under her feet other than ground. The book and snake came later.

The book is meant to be a representation for law books. Between the book and her foot, is a snake. The snake reminds us that we should tread lightly when meting out justice.

Why does lady justice statue stand on a serpent?

The serpent symbolizes lies and a lack of morals / ethics. Basically the snake represents "evil". It is the same meaning given to the serpent in the bible. This is also a masonic symbol and is given the same meaning in Masonry. I am an attorney and a master mason. I believe Lady Justice is holding these vices at bay by stepping on the snake's head.
