Плита похожа на часть саркофага либо алтаря.

A French renaissance walnut chest, showing two couples in medieval dress, each under an arch, with a centaur playing a flute in the center arch under a lock plate. The front of this chest is from the early 16th century, and was later re-attached to another walnut chest of around the same time. The lock is from a credence of about the same time period, but was recently attached to this chest. The value of this chest is in the carved front piece, which is a rare and magnificent piece of renaissance art.
