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

Socha P. Marie na korintském sloupu byla nákladem obce postavena na námestí v roce 1720 na místo puvodního sloupu, který byl premísten k pivovaru a nese sochu Bolestného Krista.

Sloup s P. Marií je obehnán osmibokým zábradlím, na jehož rozích jsou sochy sv. Josefa, Jana Nepomuckého, Kateriny, Šebestiána, Víta, Václava, Floriána a Barbory.

Sochy vytvoril František Petrš z Cervené Doubravice, sochu P. Marie za 20 zlatých, ostatní sochy po 13 zlatých. Celkové náklady na sousoší cinily 239 zlatých a 2 krej­cary, z toho 120 zlatých bylo vypujceno z farního peckovského záduší (tzn. z fondu vytvoreného ze zádušních daru), celková potrebná cástka pak byla doplnována z ruz­ných daru a pokut.
