Day 042/365 - The Third Circle of Hell: Gluttony

The third of the Seven Deadly Sins: Gluttony, as represented by the Adipose, cute, adorable Doctor Who monsters made from blobs of human fat.

 

Dante has this to say: Cerberus guards the gluttons, forced to lie in a vile slush made by freezing rain, black snow, and hail. This symbolizes the garbage that the gluttons made of their lives on earth, slavering over food. Dante converses with a Florentine contemporary identified as Ciacco regarding strife in Florence and the fate of prominent Florentines (Canto VI).
