Assignment to convey one of the 7 vices or virtues. I got Chastity, but instead of focusing on the sexual sense of it, I though about the entire body. It's alittle satirical since, when you think about it, practically everything is a sin. We're even born with the original sin of Adam and Eve. So I decided to exploit the flaws of religion the show that the only way to be "pure", was to be completely disconnected from this world. One must never be tainted with any sight, sound, taste, touch, or smell from this world. So here we have to poor sou who think she can reach enlightenment just by doing that =( Eyes and mouth sewn shut with real tread, in a kinda demented Madonna position. If that's what it takes to be pure, I'd rather be sinful. =P

Lots of the color got weird when I was editing this in photoshop >>; I kinda like it.

we were put into the world not to immerse ourselves in it but to change its ever-warping perceptions.
