Abstract: The cymatium of the cathedral of Tarragona known as the 'procession of the rats', has traditionally been associated with to a fable by Aesop. The intention of this paper is to demonstrate that there is no fable that explains this story, and that the Tarragona cymatium is a sample of the so-called 'world upside-down'. This cymatium also incorporates elements of Reynard the Fox, so that it becomes the representation of a carnivalesque image; an image in which the burial of a dead cat is not represented, but that this is one more actor in a carnival farce where both the cat and the rats are aware of their role.
