A painting based on Dante's 'Inferno'. Virgil and Dante enter the circle where souls are forever harassed by wasps and hornets. One of a series the artist has made about the 'Illusion of Belief', and the human need for meaning and purpose. The warning here is this fate awaits all who do not follow the righteous path.
