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.

Two enormous ears, held together by an arrow and a knife jammed in between. Is there an allegorical medieval symbolism behind this? 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.

This clever sculpture adaptation is taken from Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights, an altarpiece used to teach church goes about the eternal damnation for sinners. This sculpture is a wonderful study of how imagery is used to teach people through fantasy.

Part of the Parastone Museum Collection. Made from resin with hand painted details. Measures: 3.5"H x 6"L x 7"W.

Mr.
We have purchased several other Bosch three-dimensional figures in Europe and were delighted to learn we could add this one to the collection by finding you on-line. Excellent quality, wonderfully designed and crafted, along with careful packaging and good delivery.
