"Tree Man" by Bosch

Three dimensional sculpture of the "Tree Man", a figure that is 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 "Tree Man" is found on the right panel (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 molded resin forms to produce incredibly detailed three dimensional renderings of the fantastical figures found in "The Garden of Earthly Delights". 

Intricate details reveal the rotting tree trunks that support the broken eggshell torso of the "Tree Man".  Inside the torso are gamblers and drunkards in a tavern setting.  Some scholars have speculated that the face of the "Tree Man" may be a self portrait, citing the slightly sideways gaze, a signature pose for an artist that included a likeness of himself in a painting.  Others believe that the "Tree Man" represents the Antichrist. 

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.
