conturbat domum suam qui sectatur avaritiam qui autem odit munera vivet
He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house: but he that hateth bribes shall live. By mercy and faith sins are purged away: and by the fear of the Lord every one declineth from evil.
Book of Proverbs, 15:27
Latin Vulgate Bible
This is a series I did a few months back for a Gallery Burlesque group show. Each illustration uses a mixture of vintage advertising, Victorian etchings, scrap fabric and other images from my horde. Each also has an extract from the bible in Latin, with the reference numbers (but not which book). I was bought up Catholic, and whilst I no longer practice, I am still fascinated by religious iconography and ritual.
