"The Growth of Sins", oil painting on 8"x10" glass panel by Danika Kristine, 2017.
Inspired the seven deadly sins, each flora element in this piece is a figurative and metaphoric representation of each of those deadly sins from noted in symbolic botany based on the language of flowers (right to left clockwise):
Lust = Coriander
Anger = Petunia
Pride = Clematis
Sloth = Burdock
Envy = Hyacinth
Greed and Gluttony = Jasmine
Lastly, the fig is the representation of the forbidden fruit, noted in some cultures, as well as femininity in the flaw depiction that women sin more than other noted throughout history; even though it is more so by the individual rather than the gender itself to this day in age.
Thank you for your time, and best to all <3
