HIERONYMUS BOSCH - Ears with knife JB23

Two enormous ears, held together by an arrow and a knife jammed in between. Is there an allegorical mediaeval symbolism behind this, or are the horrible tortures one might expect in hell pictured once more ? Is the monogram on the knife an M or the B of Bosch ? Maybe we will never know what Bosch ‘had between his ears’ when he was painting this picture.

 

The Garden of Eartly 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.
