HIERONYMUS BOSCH 
- Fat Belly with Dagger JB19

On the right panel of the triptych The Temptation of Saint Anthony, the devoted saint turns his head from the naked devil queen and her entourage. His gaze points at a set table, as a symbol for greed. The dagger in the creature’s fat belly shows the consequences of intemperance.

The Temptation of Saint Anthony
Saint Anthony won a lot of praise in Hiëronymus Bosch’s heyday. He resisted diabolical temptations, in sharp contrast with the ordinary mortals, as this triptych portrays in splendid colours.
