A bird-like monster created by Jheronimus Bosch, a fantastic Dutch painter of the 15th-16th centuries, with an Asian touch. He's wearing here a dress similar to a Japanese yukata.
As reference, I took a detail from one of his paintings which I don't remember its name right now...
Many of Bosch's works depict sin and human moral failings.
He used images of demons, half-human animals and machines to evoke fear and confusion to portray the evil of man. The works contain complex, highly original, imaginative, and dense use of symbolic figures and iconography, some of which was obscure even in his own time.
His most famous work is the triptych "The Garden of Earthly Delights" [link]
, painted around 1504 and currently displayed in the Museo del Prado in Madrid.
I personally love his fantasy art universe.
I think mixing European and Asian painting styles together is a great Idea.
I'll probably DO IT AGAIN !!
