"Inferno" by Rebeca Bashly

I took these photos a couple of weeks ago and forgot to blog them...

I'm not sure how much longer this build will be up but it was still there when I tp'd over this morning.  

The notecard giver at the landing point doesn't seem to be working properly - when I clicked it I was delivered a notecard giver script rather than an actual notecard about the installation.

But don't let that stop you from exploring this magnificent creation by Rebeca Bashly.

The build is Bashly's interpretation of part one of Dante's three part Divine Comedy - Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso.

From Wikipedia:

"On the surface, the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven; but at a deeper level, it represents allegorically the soul's journey towards God."

Be sure to give yourself enough time to fully explore the entire build.  I was there for at least a couple of hours exploring and taking pictures.  And watch out for some tricky spots when you tp to different areas within.  I got lost once and had to start over.  

Still, it was worth every minute to view this breathtaking installation.
