This Magical Watercolor Of The Garden Of Eden Will Delight You

Like millions of people around the world, Maria Tiurina found herself inspired by 'The Garden of Earthly Delights' a triptych painted by the Early Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch.

It's by far his most ambitious and well-known masterpiece, the three panels are filled with all kinds of fantastical imagery and complex scenes.

There's hidden metaphors, mythical creatures, biblical references to Adam and Eve and most worryingly of all - a disturbing preview of the kind of torment and eternal damnation you can expect in Hell.

Whilst gifted visual artist Maria Tiurina isn't as obsessed with portraying Hell in such a troubling manner, her beautiful watercolour titled 'Eden' does pay tribute Bosch's scene depicting God presenting Eve to Adam.

The title is a clear reference to 'The Garden Of Eden' and if you look close enough you'll see her artwork is brimming with all kinds of woodland creatures, garden ghouls and supernatural elements.

Due to the intricate details that Tiurina packed into the original illustration, the finished piece took several months to complete. A gorgeous blend of rich watercolours and fine line work that becomes even more impressive the longer you look at it.
