Hieronymous Bosch : The Garden of Earthly Delights, Skateboard Triptych.

Posted on August 15, 2014 | | 3 Comments

Bosch’s most famous and unconventional picture is The Garden of Earthly Delights (c.1500; Prado, Madrid) which, like most of his other ambitious works, is a large, 3-part – triptych. It  illustrates Bosch’s individual artistic style, containing the most vivid imagery and complexity of symbolic meaning. The triptych depicts the history of the world and the progression of sin. Beginning on the outside shutters with the creation of the world, the story progresses from Adam and Eve and original sin on the left panel to the torments of hell, a dark, icy, yet fiery nightmarish vision, on the right. 


The triptych is generally thought to be a warning of the dangers of giving in to temptation, but has been subject to vast amounts of conjecture and scrutiny, and critics and historians are split in two directions. Whereas some believe that the middle panel, which depicts a fantastical world of nudes in sexual engagement, large fruits, and other suggestive elements, is simply an illustration of paradise lost, others believe that it is a moral warning, which will lead you to hell, as it is depicted in the third panel of the series. Although there are many contradictory explanations, it is generally thought to be a warning against lust, one of the seven deadly sins.



The limited edition triptych comes in a SK8-BOX package consisting of the three skateboard decks in a beautiful wooden box and  could easily be hung on the wall and displayed, creating an iconic medieval artwork. The skateboards are silkscreened by hand in France and each one is numbered and is part of a limited edition.
