Questi parea che contra me venesse 
con la test'alta e con rabbiosa fame, 
si che parea che l'aere ne temesse

Inferno, canto i, lines 46-49

In the selva oscura - dark wood- Dante is confronted by a terrifying lion. His head held high, with a furious hunger, it seems as though the very air is trembling in fear of the wild beast. This encounter comes close to forcing Dante to turn away from the perilous journey. It is at this point that Virgil, his guide, appears to offer him counsel and companionship.

Il Leone hoop earrings embody this moment, with their lion's tail ends.
