Illustration from Dante

dante Inf._34_Priamo_della_Quercia_

I could look at pictures like this all day. Look at those rocks!

At first I thought it was all supposed to be one scene and I was amused by how calm the two guys on the far left seemed given all the mayhem going on in the rest of the panel… but now I think its supposed to be read left-to-right like a comic strip – the two guys I assume are Virgil and Dante get snatched up by devil and dragged down to hell and are eventually shown crawling out of a cave on the far right.
