The art installation of Iz Maglow on level 3, the ROMAN LEVEL is created as a huge balance with slider and hand (Roman Fast-Balance). The visitor may feel the possibility of moving the hand along the slider.

The main painting shows beside a common market balance of those times also an abstract view of a "Justice with Balance", reminding the introduction of Roman right system in Europe.

Last but not least, this main painting is dominated by the astrological symbol for "balance", shown in a picturesque way.

Vertical elements like triangles and lines are conjunctions and form a connection to level 2 and 4, where these parts continue.
