The model for the chalice used in religious rites in the Petrinović Mausoleum in Supetar. A high stem supporting the bowl with the walls slightly curved outward rests upon a round base. The sculpted stem features the four Evangelists, Mathew, Mark, John and Luke. They are shown standing back-to-back. The figures of the Evangelists are surmounted by heads of animals, i.e., the symbols of the Evangelists. The heads of four angels are carved under their feet.
