Statue of St. Marjeta is a solid work of the 14th century. The saint is dressed in a dress that is belted high at the waist. She is clad in a cloak that falls over her left arm and folds at the floor. Under the left arm, which is bent and raised at the elbow, we see a fragment of a dragon - the saint's attribute.
