A group consisting of four stone figures on circular stone base. A standing male figure holds a young boy in his arms with two further children standing behind him. One, a young boy, peers around to front of male figure, with left hand holding a shoe and the right-hand clutching male figure's leg. The other, a young girl, has her right arm around the male figure's back and is reaching up to a toddler held in his arms.
