This sculpture adaptation replica, Bird Monster with Castle Body Statue, is from a painting of The Temptation of Saint Anthony. Despite the threats surrounding Saint Anthony, the hermit sits there contemplating imperturbably as this peculiar little Bird Monster with Castle Body attacks the pig at St. Anthony's side. It is an astounding creation in 3D of Bosch's 2D figure from the Northern Renaissance. The attribution of this panel to Hieronymus Bosch is debatable. It dates from his time indeed, but it is possibly made by another painter from the north of the Netherlands. In this respect, the name of Geertgen tot Sint Jans is mentioned.

ABOUT THE NORTHERN RENAISSANCE ART PERIOD: 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 Boschs style arises from the tradition of the book illuminations (manuscript illustrations from the Middle Ages). The caricature representation of evil tones down its terrifying implications, but also serves as a defiant warning with a theological basis.
