Terracotta knight on the wall next to the Gemeenlandshuis. This replica was made by the Delft artist Jan Kistemaker and ceramist Ankie Bonnet and was put into place in 2008. The original statue was found during archeological research in 1991, on the construction site of a parking garage near the Delfland office. It was manufactured in Delft in the 13th century, by a producer of roof tiles, probably commissioned by a rich merchant. The knight served as an ornament and status symbol.
