Description This is a digitized composition, primary market fine art asset from an original digital medium illustration originally designed for the Kismet, Way Of the Sword tarot deck which maintains a similar theme throughout all 80 illustrations.
Theme Highlights The source of all motion and light will be the final goal of his journey through the heavens saying that, “this journey will be the subject of my song.” The music of Dante’s “song” leads to his ultimate vision of God. At the end of Purgatorio, the procession with the gryphon is accompanied by transcendent music: “I did not understand, nor is it sung back here, the hymn those people sang then, nor did I endure all its melody.”
The traditional notion of the music of the spheres of the philosophers might suggest a monotonous grind of a constant chord, but here the sounding music in the heavens of the planets is produced by the souls who inhabit the turning wheels, singing and dancing. Dance is prominent: “those carols differently dancing, allowed me to judge their richness, being fast and slow.” A carol is a round dance, perfectly suited to the “wheels” being depicted.
Hell is a region characterized by noise: its proper sound is “shrieks, moans, and lamentation.”
An enigmatic scene of montaged art by Florence, Italy visionary Londa R. Marks provides a unique focal point for intellectual conversation.
