Danaid replicates the original designed by Rodin to be integrated into the unfinished Gates of Hell inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy. She represents one of the Danaids, the Mythological daughters of King Danaus of Argos who were condemned for murdering their husbands to the infinite punishment of filling bottomless vases with water.
