In the illustration, “The Forest of Suicides”, Gustav Dore depicts the seventh circle of Hell, described by Dante. The people who committed violence against themselves are embodied in trees, curved, naked, and exhausted.
Harpy and Greek mythological creatures with the body of a bird of prey with a bare female breast and human face are sitting on the branches of these people – trees. They move from branch to branch, causing unbearable pain to martyrs, reminding and punishing them for their acts. Every movement of the harpy is aimed at the torment of trees.
