Gustave Dore - illustration to the Inferno, canto XII.  Dante and Virgil arrive at a river of blood: here boil the murderers and bandits. A group of Centaurs stand on the bank of the river with bows and arrows. They shoot at any soul that tries to raise itself out of the river to a height too pleasant for the magnitude of sin.
