Ecce homo ("behold the man") are the Latin words used by Pontius Pilate in the Vulgate translation of John, when he presents a scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns, to a hostile crowd shortly before his Crucifixion. The original Greek is "idou ho anthropos", and the Douay-Rheims Bible translates the phrase into English as "Behold the Man". The scene has been widely depicted in Christian art.

=========================================================

Památka je na míste dochována pouze v torzu. V tomto stavu je od 15. VIII. 1972, kdy vichrice sochu srazila. Ješte v prosinci 1974 byla cást torza sochy deponována na nádvorí kláštera.

Socha Ecce homo stojí v západní cásti obce, na západní strane prujezdní komunikace, pred klášterní sýpkou. Vlastní socha predstavovala v trochu nepovedeném (jaksi toporném) kontrapostu na plintu bochníkového tvaru stojící (prevážne na pravé noze) spore odenou postavu Ježíše Krista. Sepjatýma rukama si pridržovala bederní roušku, na hlave mela trnovou korunu a pres ramena prehozen plášt. Po havárii v roce 1972 zbývá ze sochy pouze necelý plintus, chodidlo levé nohy a dolní malá cást plášte. Toto torzo je osazeno na nízký podstavec ctvercového pudorysu zakoncený nahore rímsou s oblounem, na celní strane má rokajovou kartuš s dvourádkovým nápisem: “ECCE / HOMO” a dole postranách voluty. Tento podstavec s torzem sochy spocívá na hranolovém soklu zhruba ctvercového pudorysu, s profilovanou rímsou a patkou, osazeném na dvou schodištových stupních. Drík soklu má na stranách po volutové konzole, které podpírají profilovanou rímsu, horní prvek této profilace je na celní strane prerušen, jeho konce stoceny do volut, které k sobe priléhají. Na celní strane dríku obdélné zrcadlo se ctvrtkruhy vybranými ružky, v nem rokoková kartuš a v ní šestirádkový nápis: “FUI, / FLAGELLATVS / TOTA DIE: ET / CASTIGATIO / ERAT MATV / TINA.”, což je chronogram letopoctu 1770.
