terracotta (clay material), h 72.0cm × w 83.5cm × d 20.0cm. More details

The most elaborately ornamented space in the Town Hall was the Vierschaar (Tribunal), where death sentences were pronounced. Three marble reliefs above the seats of the judges illustrate exemplary verdicts from antiquity or the Bible. This is the model for the relief of the Judgement of Brutus, a Roman consul who had his own sons beheaded for conspiring against him – a paragon of justice.
