Artist: Hieronymus Bosch
Location: Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain
Year Created: 1503–1504

This insanely terrifying and insanely awesome triptych makes it seem like Bosch invented Surrealism 400 years before Dalí became the face (mustache) of the movement. His incredibly detailed masterpiece tells the story of Creation. But this is not a simple rib-of-Adam Creation. Bosch's work includes giant fruit, fantastical creatures, and fractured body parts. The right panel of the triptych shows damnation, and it's the scariest version of Hell we've ever seen. Impossible to take in without seeing this in person, you could spend a whole day observing this wonderful nightmare.
