This ancient form of torture is featured here in the Royal London Wax Museum. The poor victim has his vital organs pierced, and blood drips from the massive wounds. The shear agony, and pain teaches this doomed man a lesson before he dies.
The look on the face is evidence enough of the effectiveness of this device. This poor wax figure never had a chance.
Off to the side is another who felt the sting of the Algerian Hook. Now he lies rotting in the cell.
