Vanity: Arachne Picture

Final Project for Senior Studio, an exploration of how we consciously or subconsciously associate sin with femininity, demonizing women in the process. The seven deadly sins as various mythological monsters (however I purposefully removed all the fantastical bits because, in fact she is just a woman, not something to be feared).

Arachne, the Lydian princess who boasted she was a better weaver than Athena, and was thus bested and turned into a spider.
