Discussing the Divine Comedy with Dante

This is a very interesting painting and unbelievably, it's from Taiwan. Discussing the Divine Comedy with Dante by Taiwanese artists Dai Dudu, Li Tiezi, and Zhang An is becoming a viral internet phenomenon. I can't wait to go see the original. Here is a key to the identities of the 103 denizens of the painting and here are some of the things they represent.

I know it is very small. Just click to bigify.

Saw the thing about the Dante piece on your site.

If you like this sort of thing (guess the people etc.) there's something for the rock fans - 'The Jam Series'.

This is two amazing pen and ink drawings featuring all the greats from '50s through to '90s - 252 artists in all across the two pieces.

If anyone wants to check them out, they can be seen at:

Anyway, thought it might be of interest!
