Long Description:
The chronogram is located on the sandstone pedestal. The Roman numerals of chronogram are larger than the other letters and are not color-coded from the rest of the text.

The year 1757 from the chronogram referring to erection of the statue.

The chronogram: haC ICone beata anna tepVteanI et nata MLaDota honorant

St. Anne also known as Ann or Anna, from Hebrew Hannah, meaning "favor" or "grace", of David's house and line, was the mother of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of Jesus Christ, according to Christian and Islamic tradition. Mary's mother is not named in the canonical gospels, nor in the Qur'an. Anne's name and that of her husband Joachim come only from New Testament apocrypha, of which the Protoevangelium of James (written perhaps around 150) seems to be the earliest that mentions them.

The general attributes of sculpture of St. Anne: Small Virgin Mary, book, lily
