The Pit and The Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe

******The ceiling, meanwhile, is thirty to forty feet above his head and plated with metal. One of the plates features a typical painting of the figure of Time, although Time appears to be holding an image of a pendulum rather than the more commonly associated scythe.

What is the event and the setting in the above?

The setting is the guy being tied to the wooden plank in the dungeon. The event is the man studying the elaborate cieling above him.
