Book lovers of classic literature will want to add little Dante the Poet to their collection! I created Dante in his Middle Ages costume inspired by a portrait of the famed writer himself. His costume is in red trimmed in black suede sash, with special hat and white ear flaps, and leaves for accent on the head. For the final touch, he holds a book of his special writings .
This special character is a tiny 4 1/2 inches tall, (11.4 cm)
Character is uniquely created from wood, wire , clay, and paint.
Durante degli Alighieri , (born 1265 – died 1321), commonly known as Dante , was a famous Italian poet of the Middle Ages. His Divine Comedy, once called La Grande Commedia and later called Divina by Boccaccio, is said to be one of the greatest literary works composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature.
