I have been having a bit of time out with a few photography groups and one of the themes presented recently was to submit seven photos representing each of the seven deadly sins.
I went over to wikipedia where I found seven animals depicting these seven vices.
After submitting the photos found in various albums of my personal photos, I uploaded the photos plus two more, I did not use originally and made this collage.
There is a link above if you wish to read about these Vices.
I found another list very relevant to our modern times and it is purported to have been compiled by Mohandas Gandhi. An insightful and very compelling list, I have copied it and pasted it below for you to read.
The seven deadly sins, each represented by an animal ( Toad= avarice; snake = envy; Lion= wrath; Snail = sloth; Pig = gluttony; Goat = lust; Peacock = pride).
Gandhi's Seven Deadly Sins
Mohandas Karamachand Gandhi, one of the most influential figures in modern social and political activism, considered these traits to be the most spiritually perilous to humanity.
- Wealth without Work
- Pleasure without Conscience
- Science without Humanity
- Knowledge without Character
- Politics without Principle
- Commerce without Morality
- Worship without Sacrifice
The words above seem to me to fit our present world perfectly.
