THE PEARL TRADER'S WIFE

By keithh  
Another 'Torched' (word invented by Derek Hansen). Lit over 30 secs by an adapted LED light bar (about 50 lumens worth).

Packed with half hidden meanings and clues. When I say packed, I mean about six 'clues' to a story. Not visible at this size but the book is Dante's 'Divine Comedy' - an 1878 vellum bound version with hand written annotations from 1879.

The clues are in the numbers and the levels of hell referred to in Dante's poem.

Superb Keith - love the light. Re your numbers clue , dice/pearls/watch numbers, they could represent stages of Dantes journey if I remember rightly.!!!
Titles got me beat though.
