'Amid this dread exuberance of woe ran naked spirits wing'd with horrid fear', c1890. The damned, handcuffed with snakes: 'With serpents were their hands behind them bound'. Illustration from "The Vision of Hell" (Inferno), the first part of "The Divine Comedy" (La divina commedia) by Dante Alighieri.
