sketching at the met.

I sketched this at the Met when I was in New York. Here's the original.Complicated and amazingly carved, this depicts the story from Dante's Inferno, where Ugolino was locked in a tower with his sons and given no food.

I think the story went that he ate his kids later and that this depicts when he is thinking about eating his kids. We studied this one in art history. Clearly it made an impression. Nice sketch!
