"Paradise Fountain" by Bosch

Three dimensional sculpture of the "Paradise Fountain", prominently featured in "The Garden of Earthly Delights", painted by early Renaissance artist Hieronymus Bosch in 1503-1504.  One of three large triptychs painted by Bosch during his lifetime, and widely considered to be his masterpiece, "The Garden of Earthly Delights" follows the customary triptych tradition, meant to be viewed from left to right, with panels representing Eden, Earthly Temptations, and Hell.  The figure of the "Paradise Fountain" is found on the left panel and is central to the composition (see photo, below). 

Considered to be a forerunner of surrealism and inspiring artists across the centuries, from Bruegel to Dali, Bosch continues to fascinate historians and art lovers alike.  Studio artists in Bosch's Netherlands birthplace, s'Hertogenbosch, hand-paint each sculpture to produce incredibly detailed three dimensional renderings of the fantastical figures found in "The Garden of Earthly Delights".  "The Paradise Fountain" is hand-painted metal.

Sometimes called the "Joining of Adam and Eve", the left panel portrays the introduction of Eve to Adam.  God is shown as a blond, blue-eyed figure, with his right hand raised in blessing.  The "Paradise Fountain" is featured directly above the figure of God.

Figures that have long been a source of fascination have been lifted from the painted surface and transformed into 3 dimensional objects for our close inspection.  Perfect for placement on a desk or shelf, this small sculpture will make an ideal gift for anyone interested in Renaissance Art, Modern Art or Medieval History.
