Picture of Cannoning the Indian Mutineers (1857):
This American painting of the Indian Mutiny (the first war of Independence) illustrates the mutineers (freedom fighters) tied to the cannon and blown up. Special attention is required to see the scalp lock of the mutineers. Muslim mutineers were insulted and were partially head shaved by the British depicting them as Hindus before their deaths. Or perhaps this might be a resemblance of scalp lock of ‘Red Indians’, native Mutineers of North America given by the artist of this painting.
