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

Pri komunikaci, vedoucí z Prímetic na Znojmo, je umístena socha sv. Aloise z Gonzagy na zdené podnoži, z níž vybíhá do nízkého jehlanu masivní bohate tvarovaný volutový sokl s vysokou trnoží, na prední strane vybaven dnes již špatne citelným nápisem v kapitále, puvodne s chronogramem. Boky soklu zdobí voluty s akantovým kvetem, rímsa je nad mušlovou ukoncující cástí nápisu obloukovite nahoru vypnuta. Na podstavci stojí na oblacné základne socha sv. Aloise v životní velikosti, v knežském rouchu s bohatými draperiemi, sklánející se ke kríži, který drží v rukou šikmo pred telem. Nad hlavou svetce je umístena paprscitá gloriola.V prední cásti monumentálního barokního kamenného podstavce sochy se v oválné kartuši torzálne dochoval devítirádkový latinský nápis sekaný a malovaný v novoveké kapitále s chronogramem (k roku 1747, dnes již necitelným).
