'ENVY' is carved through the center of the face of this ancient bust of Aphrodite. Aphrodite is not only the goddess of love, but a symbol beauty that can never be attained by the average person.

When one is envious, they may feel it in their head. It warps their minds and causes frustration and self-criticism. One may pick at their own face, where the envy might rest on a set of blushing cheeks.

'Sins & Virtues' explores how each of the sins and virtues affect the body. This poster triad, featuring three sins, display the name of the sin hand-carved into portions of ancient greek statues.

'LUST' explores sexual urge and titillation. The word frames the genitalia of the mid-portion of this greek statue as a representation of arousal.

'WRATH' represents dangerous force and strength in its display of the word carved into this statue's contracted bicep. Wrath does not always lie in the head; and while it often can be, it truly manifests in the muscles at its worst and most fearful moments.

When one is angered enough to clench their fists or break an object out of fury, that is the wrath that is in control—not the conscious mind.
