The design of the ESAHA award was inspired by a drawing found on the back of a Dutch Colonial judicial record, created by Notary Pieter Perssen, shows the notary sitting at his desk reviewing the records. Not only does the drawing offer a rare glimpse into the world of this important position in the Dutch judicial system, but also exhibits the artistic talent of his clerk.
