Garden of Second Earthly Delights

 oooooo!Coming soon to this neighborhood ( specifically April 27, 2008 ) the Second Life “Garden of NPIRL Delights. A chance to come and design and create, using the idea of the “Garden of Earthly Delights”, a rather unusual painting by Hieronymus Bosch. Bosch, by the way, lived from around 1450-1516 in the Netherlands. His paintings mainly deal in showing sin and human moral failings, and he did this through the use of large amounts of symbolism through demons, strange machines and animals.

 

The Second Life version of the Garden, according to their website, is not intended to be an exact replica of the original painting (which might be pretty cool), but, I suppose, symbolism of symbolism; ie using the imagination and the ideas of the painting and creating that. I will be there with bells on (or, in this case, leather collars and beaks on)!
