Invidia by kuschelirmel Invidia by kuschelirmel
Invidia, or envy is one of the Seven Deadly Sins.

:pointr: There are so many people who have tried their hands at this theme before me, I know. I still feel this is a great theme, so I'm trying to do it my way.

While I have read what is "usually associated" with all the sins - in this case the colour green and the dog - I chose not to follow this traditional approach, but instead try and find out what comprises the sins for me. I do not want to give you my whole thought process (this is a bit too personal, I'd say), just a little bit of insight maybe:
  • Envy is wanting what others have - not only wealth, but also power, status, happyness, experiences, living arrangements, looks,...
  • The envious person will always seek what others have and always be of the opinion that that is what is rightfully theirs anyway
  • They are so busy looking at what others have that they can never enjoy anything on their own
  • Everything around them looks "peachy" to them, if only they could take part.

This eye is really creepy and hence fits well with the theme.

I absolutely love this. It's interesting because for me not only the eye sees all the stuff around... but also the eye looks like it wants to swallow it all...Awsome...seriously.

I think schadenfreude is a result of envy. Someone has what you want, when it's taken away from them you delight in their misfortune.
