This second probably Slavic image stone from Rügen is walled in at the outer tower west wall of the monastery church of Bergen.

This second probably Slavic picture stone from Rügen is walled in at the outer tower west wall of the monastery church of Bergen. On the flat plate tapering to the top, which is made of granite and measures 1.17 x 0.41 m, a male figure is depicted. In the middle part the relief is strongly weathered. Probably a drinking horn was depicted here, which the man in coat and cap held in his hand. Until the 19th century, a cross was recognizable on the so-called "monk's stone", which was located at shoulder height of the depicted man.
