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?

Hey, this is when he is tied down, in the pit I assume. That's the exact setting. Above him is the creepy ceiling and the pendulum swinging and lowering down (the event). .
