Ex-voto, painted on wood, dating from the 19th century, depicting a woman, three boys and a man, on their knees and with hands folded, giving thanks to Our Lady for "exempting a son from becoming a soldier", as detailed in the inscription at the lower section of the painting, which is largely illegible.
