7 Deadly Sins - Greed by elestrial 7 Deadly Sins - Greed by elestrial
What earthly treasures she has she will take with her to her grave

Made for a project at school on the 7 Deadly Sins. This is the sixth of the 7-part series. These pictures actually go together in one long picture (42 inches long) that has already been finished...I'm just splitting them up for submitting here.

Symbolism
The color I used was greenish-yellow, the color of money. She is chained to her treasures because her fate will be shared with theirs, and vice-versa. She's not struggling to get out of the chains, she is willingly clinging to her treasures within the chains. She wants them to only be hers, through her life and until her death. The treasures are locked up because she will not share them.

The setting is based on the book Dante's Inferno: a dead, desolate place.

All of the seven deadly sins in my series are women because:
A) Women are thought to be more "sinful" for over hundreds of years now. Don't get all woman-activist on me for saying that, I'm a woman myself - and no, I don't believe that "women are more sinful." I think people are people; neither sex is more sinful than the other.
B) There are more women stock providers then men on deviantart. Sorry guys, but there's just not enough of you for me to use!

Nice another good portrayal would be to show a starving person hoarding food. They don't truly enjoy what they have & love it to much to use it
