The Stake of the Witches by frenchfox The Stake of the Witches by frenchfox
In the 15th century yet, women accused of witchcraft were burned alive, all over Europe. Even later , in 1692 in the town of Salem, Massachussets , during a witch hunt that has remained famous.
That's what I wanted to illustrate in this modest work that I would like to dedicate to my friend Andre :iconandrekosslick: !
I hope you like it, thank you for your visit ! :)

Very good work, dearest. The Salem witch Trials are my favorite subject in history, as I am a very big believer in the supernatural and paranormal. Yes, it would seem that they would be *ahem* screaming in agony as they burned, but several of the proposed witches reportedly slipped themselves pills or doses of medicine that theoretically numbed their nerves so that the pain was lessened. It could have been that they were hallucinogens, and that they were taken from the pain in their mind, if you will. Still, beautiful job, very inspiring. :)

Very hot image, but the witch should scream a bit and not look so apathic ... she is burning alive, not bored to dead :-P

I'm sorry to disappoint you but it I could not find other models in stocks images , there is this girl who had the best poses for a such scene .
But it is also possible to see her pose to be due to a catatonic state as if she were in a trance

Nono, it was not disappointing, just a comment :)

Maybe she is a willing sacrifice, offered for a greater good ... as for stock images ... yeah, especially when searching clothed woman it is hard to find some, and a naked witch might be a bit ... aehm ... unapopriate (even though, she won't freeze ;)) ... maybe this one [link] would be pretty fitting, but she is also not screaming, just lookin in the sky for salvation.
