This design is the reproduction of a Fresco present in the Nova Chapel in Orvieto, Italy. The Nova Chapel, or Chapel of San Brizio, located in the right transept of the Cathedral of Orvieto, was built between 1408 and 1444. The chapel is famous for its cycle of frescoes depicting the Last Judgment, started by Beato Angelico in 1447 and completed later by Luca Signorelli in 1499-1502. In the lower part of the east wall of the Nova Chapel, the faces of scholars depicted by Luca Signorelli are portrayed, according to the humanistic iconography of the second half of the 15th century, embellished by grotesque characters, a new decorative genre of the time. The fresco in the monochrome round depicts a scene from Canto VII of Dante’s Antipurgatorio. Specifically, he portrays Dante and Virgil, at the foot of the mountain, in search of the shortest way to access Purgatory. Then, their guide, Sordello de Goito, departs, being allowed no further.

A percentage of each purchase will be donated to the Opera of the Duomo of Orvieto, thus contributing to the preservation of its priceless assets.
