THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS Hieronymus Bosch shows us how we mortal souls, arisen from earthly paradise, are on our way to the atrocious ordeals of hell via our unchaste lives on earth. The dark painting on the closed panels shows the Creation, surrounded by water, in accordance with medieval traditions.

This helmeted bird monster from Hieronymos Bosch's painting, Garden of Earthly Delights, is carrying a pencil box and an ink pot in its beak. A severed foot is swinging from the bird's helmet referring to the horrible corporal punishments which could be expected in hell.  The surrounding cast from the painting are a nun decaying into a pig. The pig, indeed an indictment against the decay of clergy life, is tempting the man who is sitting beside him and it appears that he is drawing up a contract. Is the man possibly selling his soul?
