Title: Crucifixion-like strangulation
Information: This common way of representing the punishment of strangulation (jiao 絞) is likely to proceed from iconographic models than from real practice. More realistic views show, and some photographs, show that the various poles used with the garrote were not shaped like the Christian cross. The same model might have inspired these images, and the crucifixion-like decapitations or lingchi.
