These glazed ceramic figures are each about three-and-a-half feet tall and have been fashioned to look like classic giants armed with stoneware clubs, swords, spears, and axes. They are incorporated into the bas reliefs that decorate the sides of a stone sepulcher and appear incapable of independent movement. If anyone attempts to damage or open the sepulcher, however, the statues will animate and attack the intruders, fighting until destroyed and pursuing any foes that attempt to flee as far as the limits of the crypt.
