"A uke (subject) can be even staked out in the snow, but this requires iron or iron tipped stakes because of the frozen ground." The Gokusha Akurma (prison devil) described to his fellow tormentors, over a cup of sake (rice wine).

This is the thirteenth illustration of "Kinbaku Tale Six - Cold".
This is set in Japan around the year 1550-1650 AD. The theme of this series of illustrations is generally centered around examples of Kinbaku (Japanese traditional tight rope bondage).

I guessing they were bound that way to press the soles of the feet against the snow/ice, as those would among be the bodyparts most sensitive to cold.

Not really, it was just a variation to keep the uke (subject) from guessing what was going to happen next.
