Website offers closeup on famous painting by Hieronymus Bosch

The medieval Dutch painter died 500 years ago - and his works still have experts puzzled.

"The Garden of Earthly Delights" is a triptych – split into three sections. On the left is the biblical Garden of Eden. Waiting for well-behaved souls in the middle is heaven. The flaming pandemonium on the right is hell, of course. Captions and audio guides provide extra information on the weird and wonderful creatures that inhabit the work of art.

You'll have to go to the famous Prado Museum in Madrid to see the original painting - although the online version allows you to get REALLY close up!
