Headfooter Creature Statue by Hieronymus Bosch 2.5HPN# JB04
On the foreground of the central altar panel from Hieronymus Bosch's painting of The Last Judgement appears a creature characteristic of Bosch's work, consisting of only one head on two feet. This type of form is called a Headfooter based on a Greek tradition of omitting body parts as a frightening expression of possible outcomes. Bosch covers the creatures anatomical imperfections with a headscarf. The character, amusing to us, seems to be taking a carefree stroll through the bloody scene of the Last Judgment.
