Welcome to Hell! 🔥
This week, we chose to shiver with fear. With this special playlist for Halloween, Art Explora Academy offers you a ride in hell! Discover how artists have sought to represent death and let Bosch’s demons give a glimpse into the afterlife…

In this video, Great Art Explained is discussing possible meanings, of the final and most controversial panel, Hell. The previous scenes are set in nature, but hell is a man made world. There is nothing here that they have not brought on themselves, and even the musical instruments they created have turned on them. The demons are clothed but the humans, or souls, are still naked. But they have lost any element of eroticism, and many of them are covering their bodies, ashamed of their nakedness.
