Artist's Description

“A sensible man will remember that the eyes may be confused in two ways – by a change from light to darkness or from darkness to light; and he will recognize that the same thing happens to the soul.”
~Plato

Composed in Photoshop with many layers, textures, shadows, highlights, drop shadows, lighting from Mystical, filters from Topaz, Dreamy filter effects, and blending modes.

Another small panel from The Garden of Earthly Delights. It is the modern title given to a triptych painted by the Early Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch. It reveals the artist at the height of his powers; in no other painting does he achieve such complexity of meaning or such vivid imagery. Art historians and critics frequently interpret the painting as a didactic warning on the perils of life’s temptations.Twentieth-century art historians are divided as to whether the triptych’s central panel is a moral warning or a panorama of paradise lost. American writer Peter S. Beagle describes it as an “erotic derangement that turns us all into voyeurs, a place filled with the intoxicating air of perfect liberty”. The original image was painted in oils on Oak, circa 1490-1510.
