Wooden stocks for ankles and wrists

Wooden stocks for ankles and wrists

Wooden stocks for ankles and wrists, on the floor of my Hareem room. I made these stocks about ten years ago. The hasp at the bottom locks with the padlock and the two small holes in each half can be threaded with chains and used to lift the stocks and the victim's feet off the ground, which is especially good for bastinado. They're similar to the much heavier stocks in Eisenhut's "Before punishment" painting.
