и посреди престола и вокруг престола четыре животных, исполненных очей спереди и сзади.

И первое животное было подобно льву, и второе животное подобно тельцу, и третье животное имело лице, как человек, и четвертое животное подобно орлу летящему. (Откровение 4:6-7)

Hieronymous Bosch - Paradise and Hell (c. 1510)

The geate achivements and inventions of the Italian masters of the Renaissance made a deep impression on the people north of the Alps.

Thus it came about that the greatest Dutch artist of the period is not found among the adherents of the New Style but among those who, like Grunewald in Germany, refused to be drawn into the modern movement from the South. In the Dutch town of 'sHertogenbosch there lived such a painter, who was called Hieronymous Bosch. Very little is known about him. We do not know how old he was when he died in 1516, but he must have been active for a considerable time since he became an independent master in 1488. Like Grunewald, Bosch showed that the traditions and achievements of painting which had been developed to represent reality most convincingly could be turned round, as it were, to give us an equally plausible picture of things no human eye had seen.
