Thirsty Thursday: Medieval Butt Music From Hell

butt_song_1From a very old painting of hell comes this tune, painted on buttocks.  Does it represent farts? Or is it really music? One fellow tried to play it  and another even created lyrics and a gregorian chant.  It’s pretty awful, but maybe that is music in hell?

Taking into consideration that literally every painting of Bosch had a symbolic signs, we can assume that he could have been foreseen it or planned to attract attention by the music motifs. Just imagine how much information is stuffed in these pictures. Even simple notes have their interpretation and convey symbols of pleasure, lust and naughty habits. All Bosch’s works are a subject of considerable debate.
