In his design for the tomb of Maerten Harpertsz Tromp, Rombout Verhulst chose to represent the naval hero wearing his armour, his head resting on a cannon, with the medal he was once awarded in one hand, his commander’s baton in the other. The admiral was killed on 3 August 1653 off the cost of South Holland by English cannon fire. His real tomb is made of marble and stands in the Oude Kerk in Delft.
