Fiberglass statue of St. Fidelis with book (with the text este fidelis usque ad mortem - Be faithful unto death) and cross, and at his feet an angel with a club.

Annotation

Maybe the statue is renewed, since the fiberglass statue looks rather new, and we wonder if it was made before 1965, or even before 1986 when the article about the sculptor Volk was published.
