"Een beeldhouwwerk van Schaller is het beeld "Salomonsoordeel", dat voor de ingang van het Paleis van Justitie in Arnhem staat. Het beeld werd in 1958 in opdracht van de Rijksgebouwendienst gemaakt en op 30 juni 1964 op een 5,5 meter hoog voetstuk geplaatst aan de zijkant van het gebouw. Dit maakte het niet makkelijk om te zien wat het beeld precies voorstelde. Na kritiek van de kunstenaar en zijn weduwe werd het beeld in het najaar van 2004 bij de ingang geplaatst. "

EN (Translation):
"One of Schaller's sculptures is the sculpture "Solomon's Judgment", which stands in front of the entrance to the Palace of Justice in Arnhem. The statue was commissioned by the Government Buildings Agency in 1958 and placed on a 5.5 metre high pedestal on the side of the building on 30 June 1964. This did not make it easy to see exactly what the sculpture represented. Following criticism from the artist and his widow the sculpture was placed at the entrance in the autumn of 2004. "
