The Pit and the Pendulum was E.A. Poe's work, eritten in response to the war in Toledo, in Spain, I had that in mind. Carvings, drawings on the dungeon walls
Final solution of the composition.
a concept of the pendulum
Another work also for the story "The pit and the Pendulum". It's a place where the character were before he found himself in the dungeon. He was in a room where exaggerated figures - the judges were. Their sable draperies were waving imperceptibly , wrapping the room. There were 7 candles on the table as well.
Few examples of the composition. To me,the best one is the right one,above.
