Additional Details:
Prisoners have a square board through which their heads protrude, and fastened with a chain in their neck. The women are placed in cages with a hole on top large enough for their heads to come through when they stand up. This is only one of the mild forms of punishment inflicted by the Chinese for petty larceny offences
