Based on an idea seen on Tumblr from Illumidon.

For those who don't know, the seven cardinal virtues are the opposite of the 7 deadly sins.

There is an EIGHTH cardinal virtue.

Patience !

Bosch painted the 7 deadly sins early on.
1 - Sloth (a man who sleeps rather than read his prayer book. Perspective was awkward.)
2 - Gluttony (obese people eating and drinking without need.)
3 - Anger (men smashing furniture over each other's heads. A woman struggles to restrain one of them.)
4 - Vanity or Pride (a woman primps in a mirror.A demon adjusts it for her.)
5 - Envy (a man looks longingly at another, who has a trained falcon on his arm. A dog desires a luckier dog's bone.)
6 - Lust (a man and woman have a picnic. A jester entertains them.)
7 - Avarice (a man bribes a judge to get a judgement in his favor. Bribe is accepted.)

Border paintings are the Four Last Things (death, resurrection, heaven and hell ). Only the last detail has demons and Bosch had yet to work his monsters, possibly induced by drugs.

The painting resides in the Prado.
