Freestanding funerary monument shapes like a tomb, placed in a corner. The tomb is decorated with a coastal scene with a battle in the foreground. On top of the tomb a smaller structure is placed upon which a statue of a kneeling man in harnas is visible. In the facing wall a niche with a statue of Christ as Man of Sorrows can be seen. The niche in the adjoining wall contains a statue of Saint Andrew.
