The inscription in the pedestal is in translation: "In memory of June 24th, 1527".- On this day the so called reformation-riksdag was held in Västerås, where Gustav Vasa claimed some possessions of the church, which was the starting point of a veritable plundering of the churches and as well the beginning of the breaking up with catholicism.
- Carl Gustaf Qvarnström, (Stockholm 1810 - id. 1867), Swedish sculptor (Wikipedia).
