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

Rane klasicistní práce, datovaná r. 1795. Na dvou kamenných stupních je postaven hranolový sokl s patkou a profilovanou rímsou, s obdélnými rámci s ctvrtkruhovými výrezy na hranách a s nápisem. Ze soklu se zvedá sloup s hranolovou patkou a ionizující hlavicí. Na nem je postavena socha Panny Marie stojící na zemekouli nesené ctyrmi okrídlenými hlavickami andílku. Panna Marie má dlouhé roucho s pláštem s uzlem vpredu, sepjaté ruce má v orodujícím gestu pozvednuté, rozpuštené vlasy a hlavu zvednutou vzhuru s pohledem upreným do nebes. Vpredu na sloupu zapušteno kovové raménko s lucernou.
