The Haywain Triptych, 2022-08-28

This is a painting from ca. 1516 by Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch. If I didn’t know how old this painting actually is , I would find it very hard to date, there is something ageless about Bosch.

I was quite pleased with myself for recognizing the scenes on the left (Adam and Eve being thrown out of Paradise), but then I assumed the central piece was some sort of harvest festival. I should have known better, it actually depicts people engaging in various sins, and on the right there is hell, where all the sinning leads to.

The Haywain Triptych by Hieronymus Bosch, Bluebird, 1000 pieces. Completed on August 27, 2022.

By the way, a haywain is a hay wagon – I had to look it up.
