Garden of Earthly

Delights. I mentioned Bosch below (see Breughel entry), so I went & found this. I'm avoiding "real work" right now, so I'm goofing off on the blog. Amazing piece. Also in the Prado. It's the center of a triptych. The right hand side has the "musical hell" (you know, the one with all the instruments. and the tree guy with the hat thing). The left hand panel has Paradise, which is nice, too. This, however, is the earthly paradise of the flesh. Or something like that. I don't know. Go figure it out yourself. Or just enjoy.

Copyright Hieronymous Bosch. Or not.

The lines. The colors. The design. Clicking on the image takes you to a rather bigger one. You're welcome.
