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.

Heraldic shields of the Delft Water Board members in 1645, the year the Water Board bought this house, on the façade of the Gemeenlandshuis in Delft. Water Boards are regional government bodies charged with the maintenance of dikes and dams, water level and water quality control. In short: they keep our feet dry. The Delfland region is located far below sea level. The Delft Water Board was originally founded in the 13th century.
