PORT DE L'ENFER - AUGUSTE RODIN
"The Gates of Hell (La Porte de l’Enfer)" by Auguste Rodin.
“Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric moved:
To rear me was the task of Power divine,
Supremest Wisdom, and primeval Love.
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”
~ Dante Alighieri, “Inferno”
