Early Netherland-ish painter Hieronymus Bosch’s triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights has compelled and puzzled audiences for centuries. The BAFTA award-winning design firm Burrell Durrant Hifle (or BDH) are working on bringing the medieval opus into the 21st century with a virtual reality version of the painting that is equal parts Alice in Wonderland and The Da Vinci Code.

Bosch VR allows users to explore Bosch’s fantastical landscapes from the back of a giant fish, gliding past animals, God, Adam and Eve. The lazy river-esque speed of the journey allows viewers to focus on absorbing the finer details of the intricate painting, parsing out whether its narrative is a chronicle of the consequences of sin or rather a celebration of earthly bacchanalia.

The app’s release coincides with the 500th anniversary of Bosch’s death and is available now for iOS and Android devices. Check the trailer out above and for more VR art, make sure to explore the works of the surrealist maestro Salvador Dali.
