La Commedia 17. Geryon carries Dante and Virgil

from Inferno, canto XVII

Woodcut-la Commedia 17. Geryon carries Dante and Virgil

As Dante and Virgil approach the waterfall, its noise is deafening. Here the river of boiling blood cascades down the cliff. Another Animal-man monster carries the poet down a spiral descent into the next circle of Hell. Geryon has an honest man’s face with a scorpion’s tail. Virgil sits behind Dante to make sure he won’t be stung.

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