(therumelier.com collection)

"NASSAU, Bahamas --- THIS PIRATE VICTIM of the rack is shown with startling realism in the dungeon of Fort Charlotte, where a tableaux of six wax figures recall the days when pirates roamed Nassau and the surrounding seas. High-melting point wax and real hair are used in constructing the figures, which have rubber forearms and hands."
