A Genius is Raised from the Dead

Five hundred years ago in 1516, Hieronymus Bosch – one of the world’s greatest painters – passed away, leaving behind a body of work that has beguiled, inspired and outraged his audiences. Sadly, an unknown number of his paintings were destroyed by fanatics during the wars of the reformation.

One morning about six months ago, I opened my front door only to find a doormat sitting there where no doormat had sat before. It was semi-circular in shape, made from coconut fibres, neither very new nor very old, slightly worn, but only slightly. I See Michael’s answer.
