This sculpture adaptation, Freak with Beard Tail and Tacks Statue, from Bosch's Last Judgement painting appears in the middle panel of the triptych. It shows a rillo with beard, a freak with merely a head and legs. Bosch has extended his interpretation of a rillo by adding the tail of a reptile. He looks with a frightened expression at the mincer, where sinners are put through on Judgement Day. It is an astounding creation in 3D of Bosch's 2D figure from the Northern Renaissance.
Parastone, a renown European collectible figurine manufacturer, has masterfully brought to life this legendary iconic painting by late Medieval / early Renaissance artist Hieronymus Bosch, as an intricate 3D statue adaptation in the greatest detail. More details on Bosch - Freak with Beard Tail & Tacks Statue - The Last Judgement:
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.
