I'm going to start a new thread, as I wasn't entirely sure where to put these.
I don't know if the theme has legs, let's see. Feel free to join in.

Stakes are a little like crux in its simplest form
Are these girls enduring punishment, or execution?
You decide.

Great new thread. First pic is of captured nurse B. Moore taking punishment in Japanese WWII POW camp.

The pics are amazing and the comments show great interest.

What about the first question Are these girls enduring punishment, or execution? You decide.

I think a stake is a great punishment tool, especially if groping etc is allowed. Very humiliating, not too much pain.

For execution it would be a very long death, wouldn't it? A week or more without nails I should imagine. Imagine the mental torture in that. Knowing you are dying, but not even acute pain to concentrate on. To make death feel more inevitable replace ropes (can be cut) or cuffs (can be unlocked) with shackles welded closed. Gives that sense of permanence. Hoplessness. Example to others, completely lucid for several days.

Good initiative, Phlebas. Great pics to start, particularly the woman in the rain.
To answer the question, I think they endure punishment.
Standing like that, tied, naked, for hours, in all weather, is a humiliating and exhausting sanction for the punished, and a warning for all others. It could also be a way to restrain a prisoner, preparing for, or awaiting further 'treatment'.

Or for being tortured to death.

Imagine, four prisoners tied two by two, back to back to a stake. Two can see the preparations for their execution, the other two only hear the preparations, and have to learn from their companions what is going on.

Not hard to imagine, and all touching one another too ... Group terror!
