Sailor’s chest from a house in Arenys de Mar. These chests were used to transport the goods imported from and exported to the Americas.

The cover depicts a meal scene; on the top left a Virgin is portrayed, symbolising La Pietat hermitage; and on the right is a Christ, symbolising the Montcalvari hermitage. Both hermitages are located in Arenys de Mar.
