At the bottom of the left-hand panel of the Hermit Saints Triptych walks a head-footer among the fantastic animals. The creature’s anatomical inconsistencies are hidden by a turban. Bosch here continues a classical Greek tradition in which leaving out large areas of the body was seen as frightening. An owl nests on the torso-less being’s head. Here it does not symbolizes wisdom, like Athena’s owl, but deception and scheming. After all, this bird of prey was thought to surprise innocent, sleeping prey in the dark.

Adaptation of a painting by Hieronymus Bosch as a statue. This replica is part of the Parastone Museum Collection of Hieronymus Bosch figurines. Comes with a color description card about the museum replica. Also, comes with a miniature printed card replica (approx. 3.5"W x 4"H) of the Hermit Saints Triptych. Statue measures: 3.9"H x 2.4"W x 2.25"D.

The Hermet Saints Triptych by Bosch: This triptych depicts three early christian saints who lived in complete isolation to protect themselves from earthly temptation. From left to right, Saint Anthony, who lived in the Egyptian desert; Saint Jerome who lived in Bethlehem and Saint Giles, who lived as a hermit in southern France.

Wasn't there a joke somewhere about a little head?
