Archbishop Frederick of Saarwerden by 

The tomb monument to Archbishop Frederick of Saarwerden (before 1414) is one of the most important examples of the so-called ‘Soft Style’ of art in Cologne.
On the sides of the tomb, figures sit enthroned beneath tracery arches. The north wall of the tomb features a Salvator Mundi flanked by five apostles and the archbishop kneeling in prayer. The shorter west wall features an Annunciation scene; the south wall more apostles. The arches at the corners of each wall contain angels bearing coats of arms.
On top of the tomb lies one of the few gisants to be made of cast bronze. This tomb monument with effigy stands in its original location above the vault containing the remains of the archbishop.
From the official website of Cologne Cathedral.
