  • Title: Burn the Witch!
  • Artist: Lady Suspiria
  • Description: A witch is burned at the stake. Ashes and skulls of former victims lie at her feet where she will soon join them. Crows await a feast of burned flesh.
    It was believed that a witch's power could be nullified by destroying her blood in a fire. The witch was strangled first, and then her corpse-sometimes her unconscious or semiconscious body-was tied to a stake or dumped into a tar barrel and set afire. If the witch was not dead and managed to get out of the flames, onlookers shoved her back in.

  • Yeah, witches really had it bad. Well, accused witches, at least. Silly people and their paranoia.
    Great job portraying a witch burning!
