Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Five Pains is a Chinese form of capital punishment where the victim's nose was cut off, followed by a hand and a foot. The victim was then castrated and finally cut in half in line across the waist. Li Si was the inventor of this form of punishment, and was ironically executed in this way.
