From the catalogue, An Exhbition of Medieval Brass Rubbings by Kathleen H. Cairns. "Robert Parys, 1408. In civil dress and wife Eleanor Busteler. The figures are kneeling beside an octofoil cross with ogee arches. The finials are of foliage as is the stem, which ends in three steps (mutilated). The Holy Trinity, shown in the head of the cross, is symbolized by the figure of an old man with long hair and beard. He sits on a throne with a cross between his knees. The dove, representing the Holy Spirit, is not engraved on this brass."
