Luca Signorelli painted "The Damned are taken to Hell and received by Demons", a materpiece of the 15the century one can see in the San Brizio Chapel of the Cathedral of Orvieto. Signorelli uses the naked human body as his only expressive element. They are overpowered by demons in near human form, depicted in colours of every shade of decomposing flesh. Above them, a flying demon transports a woman. This is probably a depiction of the Whore of the Apocalypse.
