This painting is part of my Dante Series. Each work in the series is titled from a line in Dante's Inferno. This is the passage for Boundary of the Valley:


Scarce know I how I entered on that ground,

So deeply, at the moment when I passed

From the right way, was I in slumber drowned.

But when beneath a hill arrived at last,

Which for the boundary of the valley stood...


     - Dante's Inferno, Canto I
