Atop the Shoulders of Giants
A large, obsidian Statue of a Headsman used to execute Infamous Criminals
This twenty foot solid obsidian statue depicts a hooded executioner complete with an equally enormous axe. The statue normally maintains the pose of a relaxed but attentive guard, its feet shoulder width apart and the axe resting against the ground and its head held as though looking out over the city. In fact, the statue sits atop a hill in the northern stretches of the city that causes it to be visible even to ships coming in to port several miles south of it.
Particularly infamous criminals – especially including those who commit treason – are executed by the statue, which uses its enormous axe to commit the deed.
