The Street Sweeper's Daughter (Torture)

Very possibly called the Street Sweeper's Daughter after the Scavenger's Daughter from England, this device was mostly used in Russia and the Middle East.

The Street Sweeper's Daughter worked by compressing the victim's body; just like The Rack, but inversely so. The torturer Could tighten the device or loosen it up, depending on the victim's offense.

This device although not very painful-looking, was often employed publicly to humiliate the victim. Those particularly hated individuals were often at the mercy of an angry crowd that often threw stones and fecal maters to the exposed victim.

The immobilized victim was also frequently led to madness, as the torture period could last for weeks or months.
