3D Museum Bruges

Jheronimus Bosch 11

An example from the oevre:

The most famous triptych from Bosch, the Garden of Earthly Delights, is originally 220 cm high and 389 cm wide, or more than 8 m².

The reproduction in 3D is approximately 360 m².

No fewer than 220 characters from the authentic canvas were examined and transformed into physical sculptures on a human scale.

Sculptural Reality

In the 3D Museum you do not wear VR glasses, but you go live to discover a tangible world of artworks.

The 3D Museum has been designed by the majestic hands of 40 visual artists from 12 different countries.
After more than 2,500 overnight stays and 7,500 meals, coloring could begin.

It is no coincidence that three mystical triptychs were chosen for the reproductions of Jheronimus Bosch .

vaneyck 15

In the Anthony triptych , the desert father resists many perverted temptations and devilish sacrifices.

vaneyck 19

In stark contrast to the Garden of Earthly Delights, the land of lazy days where people are sinning passionately.

vaneyck 20

In the Last Judgment we see the terrible consequences of this immodest and unchaste life in paradise.
