Description

The Thinker, made from bronze, finally presented itself in a miniature on top of the Gates of Hell pondering the fate of thosebeneath him, which is different from Rodin’s original idea of depicting Dante reflecting over his poem in front of the Gates. As desired by the sculptor, the artifact is nude since he wanted a daring figure in the customs of Michelangelo to be a representation of both poetry and intellect. Initially, it was known as the Poet and was part of a directive by Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris to shape an epic portal to be used as the museum gateway. Named The Gates of Hell, all the statutes originated from The Divine Comedy of Dante.
