A new website will allow people to literally enter in the masterpiece of Hieronymus Bosch, “The Garden Of Earthly Delights”! You can try it h… wait, one second, do you know what we’re talking about? You should!
First off, do you know about Hieronymus Bosch? He was an early Netherlandish painter who lived between 1450 and 1516. During those years the world was changing drastically, and part of this change was also due to the incredible work of Bosch. His attention for details, for apocalyptic and surreal situations, made him one of the greatest painters of history.
One of his most famous paintings is “The Garden Of Earthly Delights”, a tryptic that is now exposed at the Museo del Prado in Madrid, Spain. The painting is divided in three parts: the left panel shows God introducing Adam to Eve in the garden of Eden. The central panel represents evolving society. The right panel shows how humanity was quickly following into hell and perversion in the religious mind of the painter.
So, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, this new amazing website that lets you enter in the painting! Here it is—> CLICK! You can choose to either follow a guided tour through the painting or to wander around it randomly, trying to find out about new weird characters and surreal situations! One of the greatest things is that if you zoom in on certain characters or groups of people or animals you will even hear them speak, seriously just try!
The painting is so big and detailed that it’s not unusual to find out about new things every day! A few years ago, a girl named Amelia discovered that on the someone’s butt, in the painting, there were the musical notes of a song coming directly from hell. Some people tried to play it but in 1500 the music was written in a different way so it’s unsure if the way it has been played is correct!
There are probably many many more mysteries in this painting, and you could literally spend hours on it!
