The Althingi Statuary Hall is a chamber of the Althingi Hall, the indoor meeting place of the Althing, which since time immemorial is devoted to sculptures of prominent Stormarkers and Valtians. High up on the walls of the chamber there are paintings with scenes from the Days of the Old Tale as well as from the Days of Valtia.

There are 169 spots for statues in the Althingi Statuary Hall. Each of the 26 Jarldoms of the Lands of the Longships Throne may contribute four statues. A further thirteen spots are occupied by High King Harald and his Principal Travel Companions, and the Law Speaker of the Althing may decide whose statues shall fill up the remaining 52 spots in the chamber.

From the Days of the Old Tale forth, the Althingi Statuary Hall is one of the most visited rooms of the Althingi Hall. The aforesaid Hall is visited by hundreds of tourists each day and is often used for ceremonial occasions.

Special events held in the Althingi Statuary Hall include Althingi activities honouring foreign and domestic dignitaries as well as the hosting of a luncheon for a newly inaugurated High Justiciar of Stormark who has been elected to the Noatun Term.

I have a feeling the people would demand no less...

 

Of what kind of material would such statue of the Lady Esther for the Althingi Statuary Hall be made?

A High Priestess wishes to convey that such statue of the Lady Esther shall be made of pure gold. ;)
