"Witches' Kitchen" by Bosch

Three dimensional sculpture of a figure from the "Witches' Kitchen", the name given to a section of images that appear in "The Last Judgment", painted by early Renaissance artist Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516).  One of three large triptychs painted by Bosch during his lifetime,  "The Last Judgment" follows the customary triptych tradition, meant to be viewed from left to right, with panels representing Eden, Earthly Temptations, and Hell.  The "Witches' Kitchen" is found on the left side of the center panel (see photo, below).  Considered to be a forerunner of surrealism and inspiring artists across the centuries, from Brueghel to Dali, Bosch continues to fascinate historians and art lovers alike.

Studio artists in Bosch's Netherlands birthplace, s'Hertogenbosch, hand-paint molded resin forms to produce incredibly detailed three dimensional renderings of the fantastical figures found in "The Last Judgment". 

"The Witches' Kitchen" portion on the left side of the center panel warns against the sin of gluttony through the processing of sinners, as they are squeezed, minced and cooked.  This particular figure portrays a witch basting such a sinner, roasting on a spit.

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.  Surprise a sophisticated chef with this unusual reference to cooking.
