On the chancel north wall hangs a painting depicting Jesus on the road to Calvary with his cross. The painting is painted in oil on wood and signed B 1563 Febr. 18, which means that it is the work of the Dutch Renaissance master Joachim Bueckelaer from 1563.

Cross-carrier is recessed in a swarm of people, in the foreground market people with their baskets.
