It is clear that Meent Borcherds must have had strong artistic leanings, and it was no doubt this talent that enabled him to build a gabled house of such perfect proportions. His intellectualism, as well as his profound faith, is clearly manifested in the splendidly balanced classicist gable, which bears the all-seeing eye of god, surrounded by an aureole, placed above the gable window.
