Art of the convict: half engraved calabash representing the island of the devil, dated 1914. The Devil's Island was one of the three islands, the only one without a landing, preventing any escape, from the cayenne prison that housed political prisoners between 1848 and 1946. It was infamous for its inhuman living conditions, unbearable climate, crab spiders, diseases of all kinds giving a life expectancy to the convicts of 5 years. This small rock, battered by the waves, was the privileged place of political condemnation, the most famous of which was dreyfus. The hull represents a view of the prison surrounded by palisades, with a watchtower, a square apart itself surrounded by palisades-that of dreyfus?
