Bosch VR is the app made to celebrate the 500th centenary of one the worlds greatest artists – Hieronymus Bosch – a virtual reality trip through The Garden of Earthly Delights. Ride on a flying fish into a Garden of Eden, be tempted by strange fruit and even stranger rituals in the Garden of Earthly Delights. Visit hell and hear the devil’s music. Take a glimpse of what it looks like from the video below:
Originally Bosch painted three large triptychs that can be read from left to right and in which each panel was essential to the meaning of the whole. Each of these three works presents distinct yet linked themes addressing history and faith. Triptychs from this period were generally intended to be read sequentially, the left and right panels often portraying Eden and the Last Judgment respectively, while the main subject was contained in the center piece.
Art historians frequently interpret the painting as a didactic warning on the perils of life’s temptations. However, the intricacy of its symbolism, particularly that of the central panel, has led to a wide range of scholarly interpretations over the centuries.
