This is the original Gouache painting by Peter Jackson.

An elderly woman is subject to the ritual of the ducking stool. This was an armchair used for punishing certain offenders, including witches, scolds, and prostitutes. The offender was strapped into a sturdy chair, which was fastened to a long wooden beam fixed as a seesaw on the edge of a pond or stream, where the offender was immersed.

Victims frequently drowned and in the case of suspected witches, if they survived they were likely to be burned at the stake. An original painting used in an issue of Treasure yet to be determined.
