Visual research for The Bloody Chamber

A quick trawl of the internet brought up some beautiful instruments of torture, lillies and skulls to be used as visual reference for The Bloody Chamber. The Holy Trinity torture is particularly evil, a metal helmet is heated to red hot  then placed on the head and then removed taking skin and eyeballs with it , a red hot scourge is applied to the sinners back and then red hot pincers are used to remove his tongue. The sinner is not normally killed by this procedure and is shown as an example to other potential sinners. Used by the spanish inquisition.
