Perhaps the finest piece of art in the Abbey is the amazingly detailed sculpture on the Damer Monument.  It was designed by Robert Adam and carved by Agostino Carlini in 1775.  The effigies are of Joseph Damer, who built the mansion, mourning his wife, Lady Caroline.  The window above forms part of the mourning suite.
