HIERONYMUS BOSCH - Devil on Night-chair JB07

It is presumed that somehow Bosch had knowledge of the  Visio Tungdali, a twelfth century handwriting that desribes a vision of a journey through hell. This was possibly the basis for this devil, crowned with a cauldron, symbolising the diabolical inferno fire.
He is sat on a night-chair, which offers him the possibility of excreting the gorged souls. His curious footwear in the shape of pitchers symbolises dipsomania.

The Garden of Earthly Delights

Hiëronymus 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.
