Torture Tools

These images stemmed from a project looking into methods of repression and control in the Medieval era. Each illustration was an exploration into the linocut process and an attempt to identify the most appropriate cutting techniques. The torture tools depicted are the Pear of Anguish, the Garrotte, the Chair of Torture, the Iron Maiden and the Thumbscrews.
