We don’t mean to scare you, but surfing through this website can literally take you from paradise to hell
If you were to take a look at this amazing triptych, you would have to travel all the way to Madrid and visit El Prado Museum — which, by the way, will be also presenting its own collection of Bosch’s paintings. However, if the Prado seems to be a little bit too far away, the National Dutch Radio might have just what you need: an online tour — either guided or not, your choice — through the Garden of Earthly Delights.
Access this interactive delight here.
Even though the painting is superb, allow us to give you a head’s up: maybe some of the sounds that accompany the tour might seem a little disturbing for some — we’re thinking, in particular, of the “weeping and gnashing of teeth” of hell — as some scenes from the central panel might appear to be too extreme for some sensibilities. You know, classic Bosch stuff.
