Afterlife ( life after death )

illustration of ”No one is the fatherland, not even the rider Who,high at the dawn of an empty square
Rules his steed made of bronze through time”...
Illustration on argentine poet Jorge Luis Borges. Forever condemned both animal and human to witness in front of the government house. But in this case, the horse decides to leave the scene and the rider falls. Dignity disappears. An ankle caught in the stirrup shows up the fatal fate: the hero will be raptured and disfigured by the force of the beast.
Next illustration of The falling of the poet through hell, gave us the imagery of an afterlife landscape. An uncanny topography full of fated human beings and evil demons. They make sure to apply the punishment to the poor people. Crowds in sadness and pain. The illustration depicts such deadly sins as: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth or laziness. The Miserable Ones, victims, angry people. A ruthless thief. Fury, violence, lies. The soul's journey towards God according to Catholic Church.

The Hell of “The Divine Comedy” (Dante Alighieri)

”No one is the fatherland, not even the rider Who,high at the dawn of an empty square Rules his steed made of bronze through time”... Illustration on argentine poet Jorge Luis Borges. Forever condemned both animal and human to witness in front of the government house. But in this case, the horse decides to leave the scene and the rider falls. Dignity disappears. An ankle caught in the stirrup shows up the fatal fate: the hero will be raptured and disfigured by the force of the beast.
