Long Description:

"Executed in blue stone, it is relieved by some golden touches, its pedestal is formed of six beam elements on which rises a fluted column.

This one is connected to its support by columns, whose ample volutes are surmounted by an acanthus leaf. In the center of the elevation, a large band is marked with oval cartridges.

At the top, one can contemplate the ram's heads whose horns cling heavy garlands of oak leaves.

These ovids support a triangular capital, summoned by a charming angel sounding from the trumpet. The monument benefited from a global restoration, completed in 2011. "

" Exécutée en pierre bleue, elle est relevée de quelques touches dorée. Son piédestal est formé de six éléments en faisceau sur lesquels s’élève une colonne cannelée.

Celle-ci est reliée à son support par des colonnes, dont les amples volutes sont surmontées d’une feuille d’acanthe. Au centre de l’élévation, un large bandeau est marqué de cartouches ovales.

Au sommet, on peut contempler les têtes de bélier aux cornes desquels s’accrochent de lourdes guirlandes de feuilles de chêne.

Ces ovidés supportent un chapiteau triangulaire, sommé d’un charmant ange sonnant de la trompette. Le monument a bénéficié d’une restauration globale, achevée en 2011. "
