An Architect Surveying His Work?

Entering the “Raad voor de rechtspraak” (Council for the Judiciary) I admire the ornate entrance and take a moment to rest (there was a small staircase to be negotiated) and try and take in the images sitting in the shadows of the “backside” of the grand doorway entrance. I see for example a stone image of a man at centre top of the door.

He “looks” into the building and somehow it would not at all surprise me if this was a portrait of one of the Van Nieukerken brothers who designed this building. As a detail fanatic is he maybe watching over his work to make certain that his efforts are looked after down the ages? An Architect surveying his work? The ‘Nationale Monumentendag’ (Open days for National Historic Places sites) continue to surprise and amaze me…
