Baroque statue of St. John of Nepomuk in smaller than life size. Figure is kneeling on cloud contraposto turned his head to the right shoulder. His right hand holds a cross. Impressiveness of the work is enhanced by excellent carving of the long robe and hair. The sculpture is damaged - broken off from the left hand wrist. It is probably an altar sculpture placed above the height of a human figure.
