Unveiling of Terra Ernst Jona Numann on the occasion of his 70th birthday and his honorable retirement as Vice President of the Supreme Court of the Netherlands after a initiative of his wife Joyce.
The map as a whole is of course a private matter, but a detail depicts the judicial process of the Supreme Court. A fairly general story. It took a while to understand the work of the Supreme Court.
Special thanks to the lawyers Peter Steenbergen, and my second cousin Tjebbe Ettema for their contribution to this detail.
