Illustration from Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’, “Inferno”, Canto IX. 28, 1921

Where, in an instant, I beheld uprisen
At once three hellish furies stain’d with blood.
In limb and motion feminine they seem’d;
Around them greenest hydras twisting roll’d
Their volumes; adders and cerastes crept
Instead of hair, and their fierce temples bound.

Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510)
