Leudigar examines the chain to see how many bells are suspended from each chain. Just one? Multiple? If just one, then he might attempt to silence the bell by wrapping it in cloth and then removing it from the chain. If multiple, then he looks to see if he can slide past the statue and under the chain without causing the chain to move.
If that appears impossible to do, then he backs away, turns away from the opening, and whispers to the others that there is an alarm system rigged at the entrance.
Maybe there is a way around to the main entrance? This passage is west of the monk room, so if we go out the north door of the monk room and turn left, we should come to an entrance to this room on the left hand side, if it is there...
