Artist's Description

egestatem operata est manus remissa manus autem fortium divitias parat

The slothful hand hath wrought poverty: but the hand of the industrious getteth riches. He that trusteth to lies feedeth the winds: and the same runneth after birds, that fly away.
Book of Proverbs, 10:4
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.
