Seven Deadly Sins: Vanity by ShaiMatarasso Seven Deadly Sins: Vanity by ShaiMatarasso
School Summer Art Project: I needed to do a series of 3 works or more. My subject of choice: How do the Seven Deadly Sins reflect upon children's stories?
Vanity - "also known as Pride, Vanity is the sin of all sins, the original sin from which all the other sins originate. Vanity is what made Adam and Eve eat the forbidden fruit and so it was the very first sin. Vanity is a form of naricissism, self idolatry and comparing oneself to God's greatness. It is associated with physical beauty."
Story - Beauty and the Beast. I found it fit since the whole story speaks of Vanity and physical beauty. In the story the Beauty, also called Belle, learns to not judge a book by it's cover and overcome feelings of Vanity and superiority over the Beast's physical ugliness.
Color of choice - Black and White. This is the only sin which is only painted in black and white (not considering the other pieces background colors that integrate with this's background). I saw the black and white fitting most since white is all the colors together and black is the lack of colors, and so it seemed fit for Vanity, the original sin which all other sins originate from.
