The right panel represents Hell. It measures 220 cm of height and 97.5 cm of width on the original (and the half of these measurements for the above presented copy).

It is also known as the Musical Hell due to the numerous representations of musical instruments.
It is not known why Hieronymus Bosch associates music with sin.
May be the music score which appears in the lower part is it this of an infernal music ?

He has painted the hell torments to which humankind is put at stake. He describes an oneiric, demoniac, oppressive, with innumerable tortures.
It is a very dark panel in relation to the colours of the two others : pallid tones of the ice hell, bright flames of the fire hell.

On this panel the seven deadly sins are represented.

This panel may be divided in three parts :

In the upper part we have the classical view of Hell with fire and tortures. The buildings are subjected to strange phosphorescent floodlights.
This blaze which represents with realism the landscape of a burning city, is certainly related with the shell-shock he got as a child while seeing his native town burning off.
In fact, these representations of cities in flames can be seen on several paintings of the same author.
The resulting atmosphere is really demoniac.


In the central part appears an oneiric world the main element of which is a "tree-man" looking at spectators. He has been considered in many occasions as the self-portrait of the painter, half hidden in order to try to dissimulate a wound produced by syphilis.

In the lower part, there is the Musical Hell, strictly speaking, in which musical instruments are changed into torture instruments.

At the bottom, on the right, we can see a man being embraced by a pig. It is a symbol of what will happen to people of the central panel, the Garden of earthly Delights, for their behaviour.
