Dante's Gates of Hell

This is Rodin's huge famous La Porte de l"Enfer, also known as the Gates of Hell. I found it off to the side of the Musee Rodin in Paris while I was in a tempestuous mood.

 

The sculpture depicts a scene from Dante's "The Inferno". It contains over 180 of his finest sculptures. If you look closely towards the center of the top, you can see "The Thinker", one of his most famous.

 

Trey's Tip: The photo came out a little boring, frankly. So I applied a few textures to give it a different feeling.
