Macabre Monday Dante's 9 Circles of Hell


Welcome to the second week of the Macabre Monday 
Divine Comedy challenge.
Most of you are probably, at least vaguely familiar with the poem 
written back in the 14th century, by Dante.
It is an allegory telling of the journey of Dante through Hell, guided 
by the Roman poet Virgil. In the poem Hell is depicted as 
nine circles of suffering located within earth. 
Allegorically, the Divine Comedy represents the journey of the 
soul towards God, with the Inferno describing the recognition and 
rejection of sin.
For more info check out the wiki page here.

Here is how (some of ) the Minions interpreted the theme:

 Creepy Cricut Cween Donna:
001
Gluttony



The Contagion of Corrosion Croms:

Circles 2-9 
She gets around.


Imp of Insanity Ike:

IKE HDH163.... LUST
Lust


We hope you'll join in on the Hellish fun we are having this week.
There are plenty of sins to choose from, and lots of wickedness, too.
For example, did you know that the 8th Circle is Fraud, and sorcerers,
astrologers, fortune tellers and false prophets, were made to 
endlessly walk with their heads on backwards so they couldn't see what
was ahead of them? How's that for eternal damnation?

You have all week to come up with something infernal.
