The statue shows a charming couple standing side by side on a base.

The woman embraces her husband with her left arm while her right hand rests delicately on his right arm. The man wears a long black wig, a large collar, and a short white kilt. The eyes, the eyebrows, and the mustache are painted black.

The woman wears a flared black wig and a long tight robe. Their round faces are gentle and good-natured and show them full of life. To support the two figures, the statue was provided with a wide back pillar.
