Instrument(?) of Torture

Post by Joolz »

Inspired by a photo in Mark Donnelly's (my WMA Instructor) latest book, the 'Big Book of Pain', I felt the urge to create something a little different!

The 'Shrew's Fiddle' isn't really an instrument of torture, more of a restraint in which the unfortunate 'Shrew' would be secured before parading her before the jeering townspeople.

I made it entirely from oak, with a fancy carved scroll neck. However, the eagle-eyed amongst you may notice the lack of a hinge at the bottom end - I'm struggling to find someone to make me one - any suggestions?

Why not inset a piece of leather ?

Commonly used as a hinge.
