Well, I'll be! I though you meant Bosch. You know, power tools. Drills, saws and things that rout, smooth and edge.

Actually a couple of the Bosch look like Bosch numbers.

And perhaps Post-Bosch. When Tools go wrong.

Meanwhile in Africa where they take a less polarised and more empirical view of the next life.

Incidentally, I've seen the actual heavenly Bosch triptych at the Prado and it is truly transcendental when you actually stand in front of the mind-fucking thing.

It's much smaller than you'd think (about the size of a big fire screen. About 4' high by 6' long) but the colour and detail still glows and bites like demon jewels - even after centuries.

I reckon Bosch baby was like Bill Blake – he had a freakish metabolism that produced its own internal LSD.

Amazing... I hope that link gets clicked. The text is pretty good too.

The gynaecologist's model is bold, but the hammer is art. What would an undertaker choose?

"What the hammer? What the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?"
