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 thirteenth choir stall from the west, on the south side. This misericord may imply the predatory power of the strong, ruthlessly crushing the innocent.
