Lego Dante’s Inferno by Mihai Mihu

LEGO is pretty typically geared towards children, however this gallery depicting the nine levels of hell in Dante’s inferno isn’t exactly kids material.

Each picture represents a level of hell including: Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy, Violence, Fraud and Treachery. Although each picture is pretty cool, none of them seem to show the special hell reserved for child molesters and people who talk at the theater
