Pískovcová socha sv. Terezie na podstave je umístena v Chodovicích na návsi po levé strane komunikace smerující ke kostelu sv. Bartolomeje. Na podloží spocívá obdélný, oboustranne konvexne vypuklý sokl s výbehy krídel na kratších stranách ukoncený oblounem. Na soklu podstavec o stejném pudorysu (s rozmery 110 x 83 cm a výškou 162 cm) s masivními krídly s volutami v horní i dolní cásti. V dolní cásti voluty vetší a profilované. Ve strední cásti jsou krídla zkosena do žebrového profilu. Celní strana podstavce nese v mírne vpadlé ploše s vykrojenými rohy a vypuklými vodorovnými stranami latinský vtesaný nápis s chronogramem provedený v kapitále. Text nápisu: “VASTANTE / PATRIAM BORVSSO / CVI TVI DIVAE / THERESIAE EXTRV / XERE PII CLIEN / TES”.

Terezie zobrazena v pravém kontrapostu, s rouškou na hlave a pláštem sepjatým na prsou sponou. Levá ruka spocívá na prsou, pravá je pred telem uražena. Výška sochy cca 155 cm.
