The Bold Characters Ring — Regular price £210.00

The adventure that Dante finds himself on is often dark and without hope. Terrified at the Gates of Hell, the poet describes the atmosphere as he enters the first circle. The letters on the gate are inscribed in bold, dark, letters, reading "THROUGH ME THE WAY TO THE WOEFUL CITY...ABANDON EVERY HOPE, YE THAT ENTER". His senses are overwhelmed by the sighs and lamentations of the tortured souls surrounding him. These sighs keep the air "forever trembling", making Dante weep, overcome with empathy.

The Bold Characters Ring is a representation of these dark characters. Whilst Dante is in the hopeless land in the Inferno, he will leave this realm at these bold characters for lighter times and fonts. The ring reminds you that bold characters are not so bold that they cannot be left behind.
