Freestanding funerary monument made up out of two main tiers. The lower tier is characterized by telamons shaped as one-legged, armless soldiers carrying the upper tier. On the upper tier a sleeping man (gisant) in his harnas is placed. He is surrounded by telamons which look like empty harnasses carring blank coats or arms who support the roof structure of the monument. Below the image a Latin text, made up out of four lines divided over two columns is placed.
