About Bosch - Bird with Letter Wearing Skates Large Statue -Temptation of St Anthony
This Bird with Letter Statue is a three dimensional representation of the bird figure in the left panel of a religious triptych by Hieronymus Bosch from the Northern Renaissance. The Bird is one of the many freakish figures which appear in The Temptation of Saint Anthony triptych (c. 1500, Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Lisbon) which is intended to teach Christian messages to the faithful. Saint Anthony won a lot of praise in Hieronymus Bosch's heyday because he resisted diabolical temptations, in sharp contrast with the ordinary mortals.

More details on Bosch - Bird with Letter Wearing Skates Large Statue - Temptation of St Anthony:
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.
