Hieronymus Bosch’s Medieval Painting, "The Garden of Earthly Delights," Comes to Life in a Gigantic Modern Animation

From Open Culture:

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

For the 500-year anniversary of Hieronymus Bosch's death, the Museum of the Image (MOTI) in Breda, Holland commissioned a modern reinterpretation of the Dutch painter's famous medieval painting, "The Garden of Earthly Delights (c. 1490).

If you're not familiar with Bosch's enigmatic creation, explore these two items before you do anything else:

1. Virtual tour of "The Garden of Earthly Delights"

2. Explore "The Garden of Earthly Delights" in virtual reality

Then check out the video above, which gives you a glimpse of the gigantic video installation that's on display at the MOTI through December 31st, 2016.

If you happen to find yourself in Holland, you can experience the installation firsthand (again, before 12/31/16).

Directions to the MOTI here.

Played on the iPad and zoomed in! Mesmerizing. Can't even pick a favorite aspect.

Wow, not for the hyper-sensitive.

Being stuck in a parasitic mind loop with oneself,

WHAT?
