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

Socha je situována v jižní cásti obce, na zvýšené terase pred cp. 10, pri silnici na Šlovice. Celková výška je asi 4 m, materiálem je pískovec. Celem k severu natocený svetec stojí na hranolovém podstavci s rozšírenou patkou a oddeleným kubickým soklem, s fabionovou rímsou v horní cásti, nahore i dole ohranicenou oblým prstencem. Na rímse podstavce spocívá drobnejší vlastní postament sochy, rovnež ctyrbokého pudorysu a clenený dvema obvodovými prstenci. Sv. Jan pojat je tradicním zpusobem, v knežském rouchu, v životní velikosti. Postava je esovite vytocena, levá noha v koleni pokrcena, hlava nachýlena k levému rameni. Roucho je pomerne výrazne, ale strnule drapováno. V pravé ruce volne pri trupu biret, levá ruka, pokrcená k hrudi, drží na predloktí krucifix. Kolem hlavy kovová svatozár se šesticípými hvezdami.
