La Commedia 33.First Terrace - The Proud

from Purgatorio, Canto XI

Woodcut-La Commedia 33. Second Terrace - The Envious

On the first terrace the Proud carry heavy stones on their back, which make their progress very slow. There are scenes from the stories on humility along the white marble wall, which catch Dante’s eye. Bent double by the heavy weight, the penitents keep their eyes down to see the images of the Proud carved on the pavement. Dante feels one day he will return here.

Printed on hand made Japanese paper in the edition of 30.

Image size approx. 61cm X 92cm
