Two Tarot cards are shown here, one real and one fake. In the first, the eternal Death of Hell rises to the top of the pack for those who dabble in the mantic arts. The second card tries to look forward to the end of the Inferno and the stars (Le Stelle) which are the last words of the book. Being obscured, the stars represent therefore the false science of astrology.
