Because I can't get enough of fun images, here is another. This is a depiction of the Whirlwind Lovers from Dante's Inferno. The artist is William Blake (that crazy motherfucker with paintbrush). The scene shows the Second Circle of Hell, where all the lustful lovers swirl in an endless tempest. Blake depicts the windful souls gusting through ethereal streams. It's beautiful, and once again touches upon that connection that we're beginning to establish in our work. Their bodies spin together, wrapped about each other in endless movement. I always thought they got off fairly easy. Though in an neverending spiral, the lovers remain united in their punishment.

And pity, like naked new-born babe,

Striding the blast, or heaven’s cherubim, horsed

Upon the sightless couriers of the air,

Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye,

That tears shall drown the wind...

(Act II Scene VII)
