Unconsuming Flame

The work ‘Unconsuming Flame’ presents a flaming apple, split in half, which resembles a fruit from the enchanted tree on the sixth terrace of Dante’s Purgatory. The tree grows upside down and offers fruits of paradise with a wonderful fragrance, but a penitent, in the name of his salvation, must refuse the fruits as they will not quench his thirst or hunger but only add to the penitence.
