At the end of the Ming dynasty, the naval forces of the Ming army in LianZhou(廉州府) defeated a European pirate fleet which plundered the coastal areas of Guangdong(广东) and captured the female pirate captain who commanded them. According to the laws of the Ming empire, she was sentenced to death by LingChi(凌迟) by the local government, but before she could reach the execution ground, she had to walk through the streets on a wooden donkey.

A friend of mine said that the color of this female pirate's skin was a little strange, maybe because I have a color weakness, so I could not distinguish colors very accurately, so I changed the picture to this, which should look more natural I think. :)

The forty-third year of the WanLi reign of the Ming dynasty(明万历四十三年; 1615 C.E.) in China, an Bailian Religion(白莲教) uprising broke out in GuangPing prefecture(广平府) of ZhiLi province(直隶省) against the empire. The uprising was quickly suppressed by the army, but someone had to bear the emperor's wrath and in those days, punishments for female were often harsher than for male, so the poor girl was sentenced to the most cruel death sentence -- LingChi(凌迟), death by a thousand cuts.

After a long walk through the city on a wooden donkey, the girl finally reached her destination. Although the wooden donkey gave her a lot of excitement and exhausted her, but she still managed to get off the donkey with the help of the guard, then went to the executioners platform. There the executioner and his assistant had been waiting, they hoping that after a while her struggle would be less violent. ;)

I actually recognize some of the characters--the numbers, mostly, but also the first. "Shining" or "bright". That is why they chose to call themselves Ming? Or was it just luck that the founder had that name? (People tend to forget that even in revered eras of the past there was a lot of sleazy politics.)
