Freestanding funerary monument for a man, characterized by a portico made up out of composite pillars around the tomb. On top of the tomb the effigy of a sleeping man (gisant) in harnas is placed in between two statues of men holding a blank coat of arms. On the right side of the print a round arch is visible which has been closed off by a screen with balusters behind which the silhouette of a man can be made out. Below the image a Latin inscription is placed, made up out of six lines divided over two columns.
