Breaking on the Wheel

Our original logo, and one which we still use from time to time, is the figure pictured to the right, from a 13th century manuscript. It is a medieval practice known as breaking on the wheel, a punishment in which a felon has every major bone in his body broken, then his arms and legs woven into the spokes of a wagon wheel. The wheel is then mounted atop a pole, with the victim still alive, where he is left to die from exposure and the actions of hungry birds. In the dark 16th century paintings by Bosch you can see this occurring in the background of the scene occasionally. There really aren't that many punishments that are this awful.
