Freestanding funerary monument for a man and a woman in an interior. The effigies of a sleeping man and woman have been placed on top of the rectangular tomb. The tomb is crowned by a baldachin with hourglasses on the four corners. The lower end of the tomb is characterized by a harnassed figure carrying two blank coats of arms. On the left side of the print an archway is visible which provides a view of the outside. Below the image a Latin inscription is added consisting of four lines, divided over two columns.
Inscription: Nobile coniugii par hic iacet inclytus armis / Ille foris sanctis moribus illa domi. / Tu tales aliquando duos si noveris hospes, / Arbitrio nomen subde utriusque tuo; 16
