View of Nieuw Amsterdam
Novum Amsterodamum
In the centre of the picture a man is depicted hanging by his middle. This activity is comparable to the punishment meted out to runaway or recalcitrant slaves in South America (Surinam). The slave being punished was suspended by a hook in his ribs and swung to and fro. This so-called 'hook swinging' was also practiced in India.
