Gates of Hell

I chose Rodin's sculpture "Gates of Hell", because I love all of the detail that went into it, as well as the fact that there is a miniature "The Thinker" sculpture included in it's design. I also found it interesting that the piece was based on Dante's "Inferno", which is one of my favorite pieces of literature. Additionally, I found it funny that the piece was commissioned to be a "welcoming entrance" to a new museum (that was never built).
