HIËRONYMUS BOSCH – Paradise Fountain JB30
This splendid exotic fountain is situated amidst a blissful paradisiacal scene. It’s design is alienating, almost extra-terrestrial. In the hole, placed exactly in the middle of the left panel, we can see an owl as a contemplative central figure.
Placed in the forefront, Christ introduces Adam to his future wife. Bosch must have subsequently wondered whether, looking at the right panel, this was such a smart idea.
