The paradise fountain From the Tryptichon 'The Garden of Earthly Delights', Prado, Madrid. This splendid exotic fountain is situated amidst a blissful paradisiacal scene. It's design is alienating, almost extra-terrestrial. In the hole, placed exactly in the middle of the left panel, we can see an owl as a contemplative central figure.
HIERONYMUS BOSCH (1450 -1516) THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS Hiëronymus 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 mediaeval traditions.
