Portrait of Mistress Tyler

ms_tyler

In this dark Gothic setting the emphasis is on chastity and the passing of time.
The commissioner of this painting of Mistress Tyler is often separated from his mistress for a long period. In her left hand she holds an hourglass to denote the time passing. Strapped down to a wooden framework he gazes up lovingly at her as she teases his nipples with cords and her heel digs into his chastity cage .
How long will the torment last? Will he face the same fate as the poor remains in the background, perhaps?
