Eugène Ferdinand Victor Delacroix 006

"The Barque of Dante" by Eugène Delacroix, 1822, oil on canvas, Louvre, Paris. This painting shows perfectly the wrath of man. In fact, in Dante's hand, by analogy, as in life, the wrathful beat the other dirtying of this infamy, now you hit and bite each other in muddy and swampy Stygia, for eternity.

Wrathful Witch is based off of one of the Seven Deadly Sins.W rath (Latin, ira), also known as "rage", may be described as inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger. Wrath, in its purest form, presents with self-destructiveness, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. Wrath may persist long after the person who did another a grievous wrong is dead. Feelings of anger can manifest in different ways, including impatience, revenge, and self-destructive behavior, such as drug abuse or suicide. Wrath is the only sin not necessarily associated with selfishness or self-interest, although one can of course be wrathful for selfish reasons, such as jealousy (closely related to the sin of envy). Dante described vengeance as "love of justice perverted to revenge and spite". In its original form, the sin of anger also encompassed anger pointed internally as well as externally. Thus suicide was deemed as the ultimate, albeit tragic, expression of hatred directed inwardly, a final rejection of God's gifts.
