Ears With Knife Statue by Hieronymos Bosch, Assorted Sizes -
THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS
Two enormous ears, held together by an arrow and a knife jammed in between. Is there an allegorical medieval symbolism behind this, or are the horrible tortures one might expect in hell pictured here once more? Is the monogram on the knife an M of the B of Bosch? Maybe we will never know what Hieronymos Bosch --had between his ears -- when he was painting the figure from his painting called The Garden of Earthly Delights..
In this painting, Hieronymus Bosch shows us how we mortal souls, arisen from earthly paradise, are on our way to the atrocious ordeals of hell via our unchaste lives on earth. The dark painting on the closed panels shows the Creation, surrounded by water, in accordance with medieval traditions.
This statue is adapted from the figure in his painting into a 3D sculpture, Ears With Knife. Made from collectible quality resin with hand-painted color details. Part of the Parastone Museum Collection. Comes with a color description card.
