The Divine Comedy – Inferno

Lost in the Dark watercolor, 30×22 inches

A project of the anniversary of 700 year´s of death of Dante Aleghieri and his Divine Comedy.

The Divine Comedy is conceived as a great vision, as a personal experience of the poet who, in the middle of life, in the Easter week of the Jubilee Year 1300, sees himself wandering through a wild, horrible forest on the night before Good Friday.

Wild animals – leopard, lion, she-wolf, symbols of lust, arrogance, greed, which can also be interpreted politically – block his way out, and he feels hopelessly lost in the forest, the desolate life.

This first canto I have interpreted with my watercolor „Lost in the Dark“.
