I don’t know a lot about this wooden Oriel. But as the name suggests its’s about justice. There is the archangel St.Michael with his perfectly balanced scales and a sword – both a symbol of justice.

St. Michael weighs souls in his perfectly balanced scales to determin their worth – a very pre-Christian image. As we can see, he weighs souls based on their deeds during their life on earth. This happens on Judgement day. St. Michael has long been recognized as the protector and guardian of the Church itself and the angel of the Blessed Sacrament. St. Michael the Archangel in Catholic writings and traditions he acts as the defender of the Church, and chief opponent of Satan; and assists souls at the hour of death.
