Gustave Doré’s engraving, “How is Mahomet Mangled,” is a disturbing illustration created for Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. Depicting a scene from the epic poem’s Inferno, the artwork captures the punishment inflicted upon Mahomet, the founder of Islam, in the eighth circle of Hell. Doré’s intricate details bring the chilling imagery to life as we witness Mahomet’s body split from chin to groin, mirroring the schism he is believed to have caused in the religious realm. The engraving skillfully conveys the torment and agony endured by Mahomet, while also evoking contemplation on the consequences of religious division and its profound impact. The engraving has been carefully tinted to heighten the drama of the original image.
