All seven Slovak banknotes were designed by the academic painter Jozef Bubak. Their artistic conception is based on a combination of modern and traditional banknote design combined with a high level of technical protection of the banknotes against counterfeiting. The obverse sides bear portraits of the most important personalities, who were active in the territory of present-day Slovakia during more than a thousand years of history and substantially contributed to the formation of the Slovak nation. The reverse sides bear places and motifs connected with their lives and activities. An exception is the hundred crown note with the motif of the Madonna from the workshop of Master Paul of Levoca. Obverse: A portrait of the Madonna based on a Gothic sculpture from the Altar of the Nativity in the parish church of St.James at Levoca appears on the obverse. The altar was made by Master Paul of Levoca (about 1470-1540), the most important representative of Late Gothic sculpture in Slovakia. Master Paul established and headed his own woodcarving workshop at Levoca, and employed several important carvers. The workshop produced sculptures found in various churches in eastern Slovakia and at Banska Bystrica. His most important work is the main altar of the parish church of St.James at Levoca. With a height of 18.62 m, it is the tallest original Gothic winged-altar in the world. Reverse: The dominant architectural features of the town of Levoca - the Gothic church of St.James and the Renaissance town hall are depicted on the reverse. They overlap with a vault of the sacristy of the old Franciscan Church of Levoca. Edge: smooth
