Adam Ellis’s “Levels of Hell” Meme

“Levels Of Hell is a series of exploitable images listing the nine levels of hell, as described in Dante’s Inferno, adding a mock 10th level for humorous effect.

“On October 6th, 2015, artist Adam Ellis posted an image on Facebook of Dante’s ‘9 Circles of Hell,’ as described in his “Dante’s Inferno,” the first part of The Divine Comedy. However, Ellis added a 10th level, ‘People who steal artwork and add their own watermark to it.'” [. . .]    –Matt Schimkowitz, Know Your Meme, July 2018
