The Wicker Man is a huge horrifying construction. It is an elaborated prison of wood, soaked in pitch and built in the shape of a huge humanoid. Its interior is actually a wooden cage containing a number of victims, usually bound. The wicker man stands amid a pyre of flammable material, and when the time is right, the entire structure is set aflame. Sometimes the wicker man stands for days or even weeks before it is burnt. The wicker man is one of the effigies used in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings.
