the seven deadly sins, also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins, are a classification of vices that were originally used in early Christian teachings to educate and instruct followers concerning (immoral) fallen man’s tendency to sin. The Roman Catholic Church divided sin into two principal categories: “venial,” which are relatively minor, and could be forgiven through any sacrament of the Church, and the more severe “capital” or mortal sin. Mortal sins destroyed the life of grace, and created the threat of eternal damnation unless either absolved through the sacrament of confession, or forgiven through perfect contrition on the part of the penitent. Beginning in the early 14th century, the popularity of the seven deadly sins as a theme among European artists of the time eventually helped to ingrain them in many areas of Christian culture and Christian consciousness in general throughout the world.*


lust (excessive sexual appetites). This deadly sin is a strong appetite for sexual desire for another individual. Rather than being authentic love, one often sees others as sexual objects. Images of wolves with human heads imply that men can be carnal wolves stalking its prey. The woman and apparel symbolize, despite the garments she wears, there must be consent to curb any sexual craving. The oversized hand represents the sexual control men possess by means of dominating females.

gluttony (over-indulgence, excess in eating).This deadly sin refers to a constant desire to eat. I wrote the words “pig out� in reference to uncontrollable binge eating. It is shown here in a form of a noose to convey that excessive amount of eating can lead to ones demise.

greed (avarice, wealth and/or material gain). This deadly sin refers to ones unsatisfied desire to obtain wealth or materials. Greed is a slippery slop and is very common within the Game of Life. Playing cards mixed with poker chips and gold bars is shown on the table. The poker chips represent what is being gambled away and givin up, in exchange for wealth symbolized as “gold bars�. Gaing this wealth often has a price too.


sloth (laziness and/or idleness). This deadly sin refers a great amount of laziness; a neglectful individual that lacks the desire to participate in life by adding alcohol and other components, resulting in a complete failure. Termination papers, eviction notices depict laziness and a life worth living lost.

wrath (anger). This deadly sin refers to one’s anger and can be defined as an act of rage. An individual holding a bloody knife is used to show how one can be blinded by anger. When enraged, you’re actions can be uncontrollable. This loss of self control can lead to irrational choices, resulting in irrevocable consequences.

THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS


envy (jealousy). This deadly sin is known as a feeling that one has for something which another person possesses. I chose to express this by having a young girl desire plastic surgery. This action denotes a desperate measure to fulfill a standard of what society identifies as acceptable. The text is used to represent societies pressures for a girl to look “perfect.�

<<<previous pageâ&#x20AC;Ś pride (vanity, excessive high opinion of self). This deadly sin is known for holding oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self esteem higher above the rest. Here you see repeated fueling of high opinions to this mans mind from the devil. In the end, excessive feeding will build up these notions into a falshood and bloated opinion of oneself. Over time these falsehoods become reality to the vain.
