Being in a tropical country does make it hard for the recent entries for subjects such as ice, cold, icy etc. Thus here is the Iron Maiden from Nuremberg, on loan for the Tortura Exhibition at Melaka. The cold unfeeling visage beckons the unlucky soul to enter her embrace as she administer her final judgement to their last breath as their internal organs are punctured to percision by the strategically placed spikes, arranged for maximum pain yet a slow death. This is one woman's embrace I can do without. Melaka, 2004.
