Description

The cathedral in Norwich has 61 misericords dating from 1420, 1480, and the early 16th century, and some modern. This misericord is located in the sixteenth choir stall from the west, on the north side. The man may represent Wrath or Ire, one of the Seven Deadly Sins. The wild boar on which the man rides is itself a symbol of wrath.
