Is this Doom? I think so ... Big picture.

That is fucking awesome. I want this as a marble statue of the same scale for my front yard.

What's funny is that the image loads up pixelated at first, like a map texture.

Isn't it Dante inspired (by the name)?

After seeing those painful looking faces my first thought was "DOOM!" and I imagined the head at the eighth picture to be an imp. But it turned out to be something different.
But you are right, it reminds me of doom too, even if those devilish looking thingies are very common in those hellish environments and doom makes use of them a lot in its visuals.

It has to be based on the Inferno.

Been a long time since reading it, but I vaguely remember the description of Satan as a colossal "entity" with three faces, eternally gnashing/chewing the bodies of three of history's worst sinners.

I don't understand how people can sculpt like that... amazing.

It could have some sort of connection to Dante's Inferno the game coming up...

That's exactly what I thought. It reminds me of illustrations from the website.

WTF? How does this not remind everyone of the Doom 2 intermission screen?

It lacks skeleton. It looks more like that scrolling faces texture. I'm open for someone to one-up-me with the bitmap name.

This. As if not the filename isn't a hint enough, it's certainly based on Dante's Inferno: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inferno_(Dante)#Ninth_Circle_.28Treason.29

Aside from the embedded faces, I don't see the resemblance. Seeing as E3 was named after Dante's Inferno, I'm sure there were plenty of textures that took their influence from the Divine Comedy's descriptions.

That being said, that 3-headed beast would make for one hell of a monster.
