In almost every painting by Bosh includes humans and monsters. In this unique painting, painted with oil on wood, the Triptych of the Last Judgement is depicted on biblical history and mostly good vs. evil.

The left panel shows the peaceful side of human life with clear blue sky with birds and greens. Meanwhile as it progresses to the right panel the atmosphere of the painting changes drastically. The right panel shows the fall of human kind and the punishments for those who has done wrong. The chaos of the movements in the painting show destruction and fear.
