About Bosch – Group of Men Lifting Bird with Blue Egg Statue – Garden of Earthly Delights
Birds play a major role among the naked figures on the central panel of the Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. They were painted very accurately, seemingly from nature and evince great admiration for the latter. In the context of the painting however, the birds also symbolize love and lust. The bird in the blue egg being carried by men on the left of the panel looks like a hoopoe. This crowned bird stood for uncleanliness because it didn’t keep a clean nest. In the Middle Ages it also symbolized visiting prostitutes.

About Hieronymus Bosch
From an artistic point of view, the world famous brilliant forerunner of surrealism was, in his day, unique and radically different. Hieronymus (Jeroen for short) Bosch was born (ca. 1450-1516) during the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance in s-Hertogenbosch, in the Duchy of Brabant. Bosch places visionary images in a hostile world full of mysticism, with the conviction that the human being, due to its own stupidity and sinfulness has become prey to the devil himself. He holds a mirror to the world with his cerebral irony and magical symbolism, sparing no one. He aims his mocking arrows equally well at the hypocrisy of the clergy as the extravagance of the nobility and the immorality of the people. Hieronymus Bosch’s style arises from the tradition of the book illuminations (manuscript illustrations from the Middle Ages).
