The Gates of Hell ~ an ambitious & astonishing work by the French sculptor Auguste Rodin that was never realized in his lifetime; he worked on the doors off & on for 37 years, but never actually finished. The sculpture exists in two versions, one of which was cast in bronze posthumously from reconstructed plaster casts. The work stands almost 30 ft high x 12 ft wide, with over 180 figures representing themes from Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy.  #art #sculpture
