Hangman for 50 persons.

In the 13th century near Paris, was built a gigantic gallows Monfokon It has not been preserved to this day. Monfokon was divided into cells of the vertical columns and horizontal beams, and could serve as a place of execution for 50 people at a time. As conceived by the creator of installations de Marigny, who was an adviser to the king, many species of rotting bodies on Monfokone had to warn citizens against crime. In the end, de Marigny was hanged there, too.
