City Hall (Korvosa)

From PathfinderWiki

The City Hall of Korvosa was built before the rise of the Korvosan monarchy and House Thrune in distant Cheliax, making it one of the city's most prominent buildings built in the pre-diabolic style, known as the New White architectural style. The building's facade is characterised by large pillars, rectangular windows, and a whitewashed exterior. Despite the rise of the monarchy, the City Hall is still a busy building, housing much of the city's bureaucracy. The most famous inhabitant of City Hall is not a person but a painting. Breaking the Siege is a massive eight-by-thirteen-foot painting depicting Field Marshal Korvosa meeting Sergeant Endrin atop the earthworks of Fort Korvosa, painted by the artist Endrik Archerus. While the painting is without a doubt the most famous piece of art in or about Korvosa, it also contains many historical inaccuracies.1
