For fans of Hieronymus Bosch

Not the fictional detective, but the Dutch artist. If you've ever wanted to decorate your home with images from Bosch's vision of Hell (and who amongst us hasn't), here's your chance to do so. You can buy models of the bladed ear, the tree-man with the bagpipes on his head and the demon perched in the high chair from the Garden of Earthly Delights. Why not get the set? There are also models from the Last Judgement and the Temptation of Saint Anthony.

Not your style? What about a life-size statue of Joan of Arc for the garden? The Maid of Orleans made of fibre glass.

Or a selection of items based on the works by Austrian artist Gustav Klimt. I rather fancy the scarf.

Plenty of wonderful stuff here.

Those Bosch models completely freak me out. Each vignette seems disturbing and feverish in his paintings. . . but as cute little isolated models, they seem utterly ludicrous to me. I couldn't stop laughing at them, and then I thought in horror, "I'm laughing at Bosch?!?"

Yes, I know exactly what you mean.

Now, is it me or does that demon on the high chair looks like an owlet-nightjar? An owlet-nightjar with arms and pots on its feet, admittedly ...
