About Bosch - Ears With Knife Large Statue - Garden of Earthly Delights

Two enormous ears, held together by an arrow and a knife jammed in between. Is there an allegorical medieval symbolism behind this? Or is this the horrible torture one might expect in hell? Is the monogram on the knife an M or the B of Bosch? We may never know what Hieronymus Bosch -- had between his ears -- when he was painting these ears in The Garden of Earthly Delights. In this painting, 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.

    Bosch
    Perhaps the most brilliantly original and morally complex of all northern European religious painters, Hieronymus Bosch is most immediately associated with works with a disturbingly vivid, dream-like quality. Though only an estimated 25 original works exist, the nightmarish iconography in his paintings is instantly recognizable as "Boschian" and has become a staple of the genre of the grotesque. Bosch was one of the first artists to represent abstract concepts in his work, often through the narrational device of the triptych. Bosch places visionary images in a hostile world full of mysticism, with the conviction that the human being, due to its own stupidity and sinfulness has become prey to the devil himself. He holds a mirror to the world with his cerebral irony and magical symbolism, sparing no one. He aims his mocking arrows equally well at the hypocrisy of the clergy as the extravagance of the nobility and the immorality of the people. Here you find some of the unique and surreal sculpture for Bosch in this collection of statuary.
