Some art critics believe that Bosch may have painted this work as an illustration of the beliefs of a heretical sect, called the Adamites -from the nakedness of Adam- which believed in nudism and free sexual relations. In general, however, it is thought that, as is the case throughout Bosch's work, that it is a moral satire on the destiny of human nature, with a great number of symbols that still have not been satisfactorily interpreted.
