Owl Headed Dancer Fantasy Figurine with Many Legs by Hieronymus Bosch 6.25HPN# JB28
Hieronymus Bosch has created an unusual hybrid creature with an owl head and multiple dancing legs. This figurine statue is adapted from his original painting, Garden of Earthly Delights.
Dancers with Owl
At bottom right on the central panel of the Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, two figures -- partially hidden inside a fruit -- seem to engage in a ritual dance. This could refer to the three fatal dances in life: love, fate and death. An unruffled owl sits atop the fruit, probably not as a symbol of wisdom as is the case with Athena's owl, but as a symbol of deceit and scheming. After all, this predator was said to surprise its innocent, sleeping prey in the dark.
