Philip II, king of Spain, great admirer of El Bosco acquired it in 1893 and assigned it to the Monastery of El Escorial where it remained until the Spanish Civil War, and in 1939 it was transferred to the “Museo del Prado”, where it is today.
The work is a united triptych, and closed shows a painting that represents the earth on the third day of creation. There are no people or animals, only soil and vegetables.
The open triptych consists of three parts, the left part represents the creation of Adam and Eve by God.
The central part, with a tremendously massified composition of personnel, represents the decadence of the human being, the lust, the depravity, and finally the right part represents the condemnation of the human being to hell.
