This storage chest is richly ornamented: the three carved statues on the front represent the Dutch commanders William of Orange and his sons, Maurice and Frederick Henry. All three fought for the liberation of the north Netherlandish provinces. The panels between them present scenes from the Old Testament story of Susanna, who is threatened by two elderly men.
