Intermission Art #10
Intermission Art #10 Gold Ring Government Administration Building Today's intermission art features a depiction of Gold Ring's Government Administration building, which showcases breathtaking architectural design which the city of Gold Ring is famous for. Terraced stories surround the main complex, with walkways stemming outward into the city. The work of the city's Gardeners is also on display, with lush Eltus plants and hanging gardens adding their emerald beauty to the landscape. Sometimes known as the "Golden Heart of the City", it is a delight to behold by both nobles and common folk alike. Within this marvelous building, laws and legal issues are discussed amongst Gold Ring's finest Southern Noble representatives. On occasion the members of the Council seek the advice of the enigmatic Talyxian Rooters whose wise opinions on certain political topics can be helpful, though otherwise the Rooters refrain from becoming involved with official Eltus business. The standing Judda is present as well, though he or she does not weigh in on the affairs and merely acts as a public symbol of grace and beauty. This system of the Judda can be compared to the Japanese Emperor system. In it, the Emperor is "the symbol of the State and of the unity of the people." and has "historically alternated between a largely ceremonial symbolic role and that of an actual imperial ruler. Since the establishment of the first shogunate in 1192, the Emperors of Japan have rarely taken on a role as supreme battlefield commander, unlike many Western monarchs." The difference between the Japanese Emperor and the official Judda is that the Judda has no right to government at all, and are treated as a public idol and the greatest living treasure of Gold Ring.
