By Hieronymus Bosch (ca. 1450-1519)
From the work "The Last Judgment"
This sculpture adaptation replica, Blue Flutist, from Bosch's Last Judgment appears on the left hand side on the middle panel of the triptych. He is a cheerful blue creature which adds luster with his music to the horrifying spectacle. He symbolizes the lawlessness, ending in many not being admitted to heaven on Judgment Day. It is an astounding creation in 3D of Bosch's 2D figure from the Northern Renaissance.
Dimensions: 2 in. x 3 in. x 4 in. 0.4lb. Made of quality resin with hand-painted color details.
ABOUT THE ARTWORK: In THE LAST JUDGMENT Hiëronymus Bosch warns us against the consequences of a life of sin. The downfall of the rebellious angels on the left panel heralds the beginning of the end. Further, one sees the chosen few in heaven, with below them the vast remainder who will have to undergo the most horrendous tortures on Judgment Day. Saint Jacob of Compostella and the ‘Holy Bavo’ adorn the closed panels
