Toegang Tot De Hel

(Gates to Hell)

Show Explanation

In the center of this piece there is what appears to be an Arabic style door leading to a path through hell. However, it is not a door but a keyhole through which one can see an eye – the eye of God, representing good.

On the left is a horseman whose head is a skull and the feathers of his helmet are his hair. He rides not a horse but a dragon that spits fire and keeps hell burning.

On the right a bloodthirsty bat flies on the tongues of flame from purgatory. Above him, the round shapes depicted in movement represent war, something often described as hellish.
