PhotoHunt

Tree Trunks - The origins of Wood.
This tree was strike by lightning.
It's currently preserved by Jacob Ballas Garden.


Long before the invention of the Electric Chair.
A
wooden interrogation chair used by the Koreans in ancient days.
This picture was taken at
Dae Jeum Gum filming site in Seoul.
Those who have watched the drama, would have seen this chair where they question the criminals and torture them in it.

Great photos. It's good that the tree trunk is currently given care so that it can be preserved.

That wooden chair must have been a source of fear at that time.

carolinespicturepages.com said...

Very interesting looking chair.

Seeing that tree trunk reminds me of another picture I good have posted.

Jen said...

I almost did something similar and post a picture of some huge trees we saw in New Zealand. But, I just did tree's close by our home instead! Awesome pictures!

yung . said...

It must be "exciting" sitting on the chair waiting to be shocked. LOL!

Bonggamom said...

Yikes, the torture chair is creepy, it looks so spindly but I'm sure it holds a screaming prisoner quite firmly (I told you it creeps me out!)

Juliana RW said...

what an unique chair :D

mine in here

picturing of life said...

wow..you have nice wooden pics in here.

Will you visit my “wooden“

mama meji said...

That chair is an interesting piece! I'm just not sure it can hold my weight. =)

WillThink4Wine said...

Both examples leave me feeling quite sad. The tree lost it's life, and likely spme of the people in the chair.

That tree is a work of art! Beautiful.

marcia said...

we have a tree like that near here we call a hawk tree because it sits there often

JesieBlogJourney said...

Great pictures. Normally I see coconut tree stumps but this one is different. I want to be naive like a little kid to admire the chair and not to know what it was used for.

I'm usually late. Hope you like my hunt.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...
