Tk's postscript driver boldly ignores image objects
displayed on the canvas...

IIRC, the "dash" patches to Tk addresses this problem.
You can probably find them via the resource section
on www.scriptics.com.

If you don't want to require a patched version of Tk,
you may be able to use PIL's PSDraw module to draw
the entire thing directly as postscript.
