Unusually, the saint is depicted beardless and with youthful features. The facial type and hairstyle directly relate to figurative roof sculptures of from late medieval East Anglia, especially depictions of angels. A large figurative corbel depicting a wildman, originally Bury St Edmunds and now preserved at the V&A, is almost certainly from the same workshop. In Saint Roch′s legend, an angel appears in the guise of a dog to lick his wounds and bring him bread when the saint was afflicted with plaque on pilgrimage to Compostella. The dog is depicted here in the form of a Talbot Hound.
