This piece is probably the most tormented piece of my gallery. Craesbeeck, a religious man, painted this piece in hopes of reviving Catholicism. Saint Anthony is seen underneath the tree on the right, apparently holding scriptures as all these “evil thoughts given physical form” approach him. On the tree is a drawn image of Jesus on the cross. Not to be ignored, is a giant man’s head where those evil thoughts are coming from. Clearly you can see the front of his head ripped open. If you look closely you can see the devil horns on almost all of the figures in the painting.
The artist used color very well in showing the light shining over the large mans head.
