Black haired Greek slave repeated the sad story of her unlucky fatherland, enslaved and drowned in blood by the unconquered Roman Empire.

Tribune
The praetor's informer found the pack of robbers and at the sunrise Roman soldiers departed the fort heading to the village of Malus Minor to arrest six criminals. In the same time six crosses were prepared on both sides of the road. But the wretched have a spy of their own, too, and they were not surprised. The approaching legionnaires were attacked with javelins and arrows from the upper floor and lost three men. The worst, they are unable to arrest all the bandits and were forced to kill three opponents before they could disarm and tie the remaining three. The commander was unsatisfied as the three freshly prepared but empty crosses looked stupid and the people could be supposing that half of the victims ran away. Lucky the soldiers found and brought together with the wanted criminals two local prostitutes, sleeping in their room, and in addition they caught the innkeeper of the pothouse where the criminals had their den, in order to be interrogated. The interrogation proved they were innocent but they were such perfect three lacking bodies for the crosses...

A woman, exhausted with a long march and overhelming fear, shame of being stripped, humiliation of being raped and pain of being nailed, sitting under the stipes quietly and limply like an abandoned doll. A toy for the people. A living doll. Well, maybe abandoned but for a very short moment only. And maybe living but not allowed to live long either. Soon we will hear her crying, moaning and sobing again...

Waste not! Love this series. Well done!

If the condemned fights or tries to escape, the heavy scourging makes a perfect tranquilizer. But in case of a young, innocent girl, poking suddenly few palms into her cunt will be enough: surprised and ashamed, she will allow the executioners to finish tying her to the wood until it will be to late to resist. Mary at least was surprised enough. She cried and stopped to resist, stoned, allowing the praefectus slaves to hammer her to the cross and left exposed for the painful agony.

Men and women crucified across from each other, how wonderful! Put the men across from the most lovely younger women for so much more humiliation when they become erect. Great set of images.

Great scene, I love mixed crux like this. The women are led there, they see the men already crucified, they can't help looking. The men are helpless, their bodies react to the women, laid out, nailed, raised to suffer in front of them.

Great pictures! They remind me of the story "The Way of the Cross II: The Merchant’s Tale" where a dozen of insurgents are crucified naked along a street, opposite of each other. Two of them (a man and a fat woman) are penetrated, but not allowed to come. Would be fun to see some pictures of that story.

The painful death of Agnes, part 2 of 2.

Ha ha. No, bitch, we will not "put you out of your misery". You've only been up there a few minutes. We'll show you mercy in 3 days time, if you survive that long, by shattering the bones in your legs so that you can no longer lift yourself up to get more air in your lungs. That will speed up your death. And you'd better fucking thank us for it too!

Sketches, by their nature, don't have the luxury of colour or photo-realism to convey a story, yet your images convey so much, so powerfully. Great work, as always, Andy.

The ransom has not been paid and the consul got rid of the hostage, the daughter of some weak and unimportant king of some weak and unimportant Slavic tribe, crucifying her immediately.
Apart from the awesome picture, this is concept is a fascinating one. Obviously you should never pay a ransom, it only encourages more hostages to be taken. But if the hostage is the daughter of a king and the kidnappers are a foreign government, not paying it might not only get her killed (obviously a sacrifice her dad was willing to make) but it could cause the foreign government to think that you are weak and decide to invade. That might cost you everything! Andy, with your blessing, I think I'd like to use that concept as the basis for my second story, when I get around to writing it.

In fact, the same story lies in a background of Quo Vadis, a story of Lydia, a Germanic or Slavic (Northern European) hostage who lived in Rome and never was released so she never returned to her father, a king of her tribe, but have been condemned to death instead during the anti-Christians persecutions. The story was written by the Polish writer Henry (Henryk) Sienkiewicz in the beginning of the twelfth century and few movies have been made till now with the same scenario and mostly the same title.

As for Quo Vadis, I have read the interesting story about how the Polish 2001 version movie was made and especially how the mass crucifixion scene was shot. As you know, except the pre-code black-and-white screenings made by Italy in 1913 and by Germany and Italy in 1924, no really nude women were ever shown crucified on the screen in Quo Vadis screenings. The original b&w movies as far as I know didn't survive, and we could admire only few stills. It's a pity that during the Polish screening in 2001 George (Jerzy) Kawalerowicz decided to show very little nakedness in the torture scenes too - he did so because Quo Vadis was a school reading so the movie was thought for teenagers. But at least they decided to show two stripped girls in the foreground, wrapped with garlands only, partially unveiling their pubic hairs. All the remaining women hanging on the crosses have loincloths. It is a pity too, because (as I read) the producer (having limited financial resources perhaps) didn't pay professionals (actresses, prostitutes or striptizers) but made a special casting for women who wanted to play a role of nude extras in the crucifixion scene for a relatively small payment. He was affraid that he wouldn't be able to find the required number of extras, but he was shocked with the results. Lots of girls and women accepted the terms, many were eager to present their charms uncovered to his camera even as volunteers, for free. Unfortunately, only two of them were allowed to hang really unclothed. I wonder if one day some producer will decide to make a really historically correct Quo Vadis with the full nude crucifixion scene, mixed sexes and with young and mature men and women, lasting at least few minutes, but I am affraid it will be impossible in a mainstream post-code reality.
