At the bottom of the left-hand panel of the Hermit Saints Triptych walks a head-footer among the fantastic animals. The creatures anatomical inconsistencies are hidden by a turban. Bosch here continues a classical Greek tradition in which leaving out large areas of the body was seen as frightening. An owl nests on the torso-less beings head. Here it does not symbolizes wisdom, like Athenas owl, but deception and scheming. After all, this bird of prey was thought to surprise innocent, sleeping prey in the dark.
