Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

“The Garden of Earthly Delights” by Hieronymus Bosch

You knew we would get around to this one sooner or later. It's the center panel of a triptych called The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch.

Some have speculated that Bosch had a vivid imagination. Some have suggested that his imagination had help.

Some of that sex isn't exactly natural. It's definitely exploring a few dozen sins. Some of it may not be sex in a literal sense.

About all we know for sure is that Bosch was mixing the profound with the profane of his day and age. Most scholars agree that the panel depicts either a spiritual transition or falling into corruption, possibly both at the same time. Beyond that, it's anyone's guess.

I’m a naturist in both senses of the word. Life doesn’t always need clothes. I admire the human body. I hope you can too.
