Easy to miss this statue normally. But is currently adorned with a colourful knitted shawl. I think this is all part of the pig thing currently going on around the town centre. Nice to have statues like this around town
It is a lifelike statue and gives a good impression of how Wolsey might have looked. It was long overdue that Ipswich celebrated him. Like him or not, he was a very important figure in those turbulent Tudor times.
Ipswich has a lot of statues remembering the great people who have lived in the town. This one for Cardinal Wolsey is probably the least inspiring. Wolsey was certainly a powerful man in his day, but this statue is rather insignificant.
