Looking for analysis of Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. And yes, I absolutely had to look up the spelling on that one.

It's one of my favorite pieces of visual art, probably because I see something new every time I look at it. While I was staring at a recently tacked up poster of it, I was wondering what the head count was.
Is there a breakdown of the individuals in the triptych, or at least of all the separate tableaux? Not sure if that's the right word for all the little Where's Waldo scenes in it. I'm sure there's plenty of analysis of this painting, but I honestly don't know where to begin. I've been focusing on the nun pig, but that's probably just me.
