Statuary group carved and polychrome representing Tobie and Raphael, slaying the demon.
The archangel envelops Tobie under his left arm, in a protective gesture. He is wearing a belted dress at the waist and a long coat decorated with flowers. Raphael holds a traveler's stick in his right hand. His face with soft features is wearing blond curls.
At his side, Tobias is represented in prayer dressed simply in a red robe. Both are standing on the demon they are trampling.
