[ The head of a person wearing "branks" with tall ears that resemble those of a donkey. The person's face exhibits agony and red is smeared across the image to depict blood. The bottom of the image has text that reads: "Branks were 16th - 19th century instruments to control dissent, often inflicted on women considered troublesome or litigious. If restrained long enough, the victim starved to death." ]
