ETERNAL CONFLICT

***

Clash heavy weights

Together. Some shout, “Why hoard?”

Others shout, “Why waste?”

***

NOTE: Engraver Gustave Doré cleverly made the heavy weights full moneybags. The wasters and misers push heavy rolling weights around the fourth circle and when they meet, they violently clash the heavy weights together.
