Bosch VR: A Virtual Journey through The Garden of Earthly Delights.
Virtual Reality and Medieval Fantasy come together in Bosch VR, an epic visual journey through fine art and cutting edge technology. The richly illustrated worlds of the Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch have intrigued art lovers for centuries. Bosch VR transports viewers into the heart of one of his most famous paintings, The Garden of Earthly Delights, creating an unforgettable experience.
The Garden of Earthly Delights is Bosch’s masterpiece, a vast triptych depicting a highly symbolic Biblical landscape, from creation through to the torments of hell. Bosch VR is a three-dimensional journey into this intricate world, allowing viewers to ride a flying fish through the Garden of Eden, endure illicit temptation and be transported into Bosch’s terrifying vision of hell.
The app has been created by BDH, the award-winning visual design agency. With original music by composer Timo Baker.
A limited edition Bosch VR Cardboard Viewer, bearing scenes from Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights and has been produced in association with the Bosch500 celebrations.
*This app is optimised for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, may have problems on earlier phones. Google Cardboard or other Cardboard-supported VR viewer required to view app properly.*

Ratings and Reviews
Great Intro - Needs Pricing
The free Eden intro is great. Viewers have a 360 degree look into the painting. However, it moves at a steady pace and you cannot stop to look at some of the amazing detail. Seeing that one can view it again and again this isn't a major issue.
My main problem is the purchasing of the other painting portions. No prices are listed in the VR app or in the intro screen. It simply prompts a purchase when selected. The price at posting is $4, however, I would have been more inclined to purchase had the info been available inside the app.
A good start
Interesting perspective on the works, but the animation is simple, and it wholly lacks effort to incorporate the 3D environment - no shadows or texturing or environmental animation (tree leaves blowing, water splashing, etc.) Comes off more as a development comp than a final product.
Supper Trippy Painting, Comes Alive
Excellent 360 VR work of art. Love the concept of exploring a painting. Felt like I was in Bosch's crazy painting. Pay the extra few$ for the rest of the painting. I love supporting progressive art in new media. Can't wait to see more from this group!
