Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch.Bosch-Triptych-Garden-Earthly-Delights-CenterThe Garden of Earthly Delights was painted around 1500 (+/- 10 years) by Hieronymus Bosch. It is a triptych, which means it is a three-part painting.

The left (1st) panel shows Adam and Eve, the larger middle shows a fanciful existence here on earth, and the right (final) panel shows a hellish end. Lesson? Don’t fall to temptation. When closed, it illustrates a pre-man vision of the world God created.-Bosch-Triptych-Garden-Earthly-DelightssidebarsOuter Cover:BoschGarden-Earthly-Delightsouter
