About Bosch Paperweight – Parastone – Bird with Letter
Bird with Letter Paperweight by Parastone illustrates 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.
