    From one of the side wings of a three-winged epitaph in Ribe Cathedral, where the portraits are the oldest preserved bourgeois epitaph portraits in Denmark. The inscription, which no longer exists, read: "The heirs had the tomb made in 1569". That is 15 years after the death of the parents. The central image, a painting of the Resurrection, has been lost.
