The impalement device: A sharp pole with a strong wooden base can serve as the most torturous device . First the victim is stripped naked and then oil is poured into his anus or into the vagina (if the victim is a female). Then he is made to sit on the pole from the top. As time goes by, the victim slowly starts sliding down due to gravity and his own struggling movement. No doubt that many people would have died horrific deaths here!

Hard to believe this beautiful tool was designed for a discusting purpose!  An artist designed pretty flourishes into this little piece of metalwork...on an instrument of torture which was inserted into a victim and expanded by means of a screw device to tear through the victim's internal organs, causing an excruciating death.
