Wrath

Artist's Description

vir iracundus provocat rixas et qui ad indignandum facilis est erit ad peccata proclivior

A passionate man provoketh quarrels: and he that is easily stirred up to wrath, shall be more prone to sin.
Book of Proverbs, 29:22
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.
