The body of a Japanese war criminal as seen through the trapdoor of the gallows immediately after he has been executed by hanging on the gallows in Changi Gaol. His hands have been tied behind his back and he wears all white, including a hood over his head. Note the semi circles marked on one half of the trapdoor, which match up to form full circles, indicating where those about to be hanged should stand.
