A murderer in Muli, 1928

prisoner in stocks, originally uploaded by jiulong.

"A Nuosu murderer at the prison of Muli. Permanent iron clamps hold the boards of the cangue together; he will wear this for five years, should he live so long. His hands cannot reach his face, so he must be fed a ball of barley flour twice a day by a monk."
