Description of Satan

Satan has three heads—red, black, and yellow—and from his six eyes streams continuous tears.  In each of its mouths, Satan gnaws on the worst of the traitors: Judas, Brutus, and Cassius.  Virgil abruptly tells Dante that they must leave.  Virgil pulls his pupil onto his back and begins to climb down Satan’s hairy body.  Virgil continues to climb until they come to a point where Satan’s legs stand upright in a dark cave.  Virgil explains that when they climbed down Satan’s side, they passed the center of the center of the earth so that they now stand just below the Southern Hemisphere.  Satan stands where he was planted when he originally fell from Heaven.  Dante quickly scrambles to climb back to Earth and as he does he sees stars above him for the first time since his journey began.
