The Gates of Hell

The Gates of Hell is a work sculpted by Rodin, it currently stands in the Musee de Orsay in Paris and is based on the characters of Danté's Inferno.  I find this piece fascinating, the longer you stare at it, the more intricacies you discover.  Here are two close-up images of various scenarios found in the work, which is much larger & detailed than one would imagine.
