Dante's meeting with Virgil. Illustration for Dante's The Divine Comedy.

In the process of reading Dante's Divine Comedy, I had an idea to illustrate this book. This book thrilled me with the depth and loftiness of thoughts. The book strengthened me in understanding that with the new times are coming, everything is changing, but human nature remains unchanged. A man still lives full of passions and desires, making many mistakes, for which he will pay in the future.
