Title The Haywain Triptych, Left Panel by Hieronymus Bosch
Description The Haywain Triptych, Left Panel by Hieronymus Bosch

Haywain is a triptych panel painting by Hieronymus Bosch, begun in 1485 and completed in 1490. The centre panel measures 140 by 100 cm, and the wings measure 147 by 66 cm. The Haywain triptych exists in two versions, one in El Escorial, the other in the Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain. The outside shutters of the triptych are titled The Path of Life. They feature a character who is strikingly similar to The Wayfarer.

The left third shows the presence of God as he creates Eve. Unlike the Garden, though, a top to bottom chronology flows through the panel. At the top, the rebel angels are cast out of Heaven while God sits enthroned, the angels turn into insects as they break through the clouds. Under this, God presents himself on Earth when he creates Eve from the rib of Adam. Next, Adam and Eve find the serpent and the tree; the serpent offers them an apple. Finally, at the lowest part of the panel, the angel forces the two out of the garden. Adam converses with the angel; Eve looks ahead to the right in a melancholic pose.
