A Stag Beetle carries the infernal world of Dante’s Divine Comedy. We view these circles from above in a maze of confusion that draws the eye to the centre. The 3-headed Cerberus guards the proverbial Gate of Hell in the shape of a winged skeleton. The Beetle’s shell crumbles away in city-like structures to reveal the 9 spheres of hell. Suspended above its head are the words ”Lasciate Ogne Speranza Voi Chi’intrate”. (Abandon all hope ye who enter here).
