Dante 100x100 Purgatorio Group Show in Milan, Italy

I was part of a project some years ago in which 100 artists in Italy were selected to interpret a section of the Divine Comedy by Dante. I was given Canto XXVI of Purgatorio. I enjoyed the humility and respect the various poets show to one another - Dante, Virgil, Guido Guinizelli and Arnaut Daniel.
The image is a closeup of an ink I made 0f the face of Dante in this act of respect and humility. The closeup brings out the brush strokes. Only Dante has shadow on his figure since the rest are shadows themselves (or 'shades'). I printed it and hand-tinted it 33 times for the project.
