Vanity, a precursor to one of the seven deadly sins (Pride), is represented here in this fancy tin (thanks to my buddy Jenn Schiffer). The phrase Omnia Vanitas (“All is Vanity”) reminds us of  the “ultimate fruitlessness of humankind’s efforts in this world,” or perhaps more generously, the impermanence of our physical existence. Perhaps even more fruitless is the efforts put into digital existence.  This diorama sums up quite a few ideas in a simple way; several types of vanities, a vanitas, and the symbolism of vanity itself. It starts the anthropomorphizing the seven deadly sins.  Also, I had to remove 3/4 of the bristles in a brush to paint the devils eyes.
