They're hideously fun, and a great conversation piece.

They keep me in check!
I have all seven sins posted in prominent places throughout my house. Whenever I am feeling-------, I simply look at the sin, and I am instantly put back where I belong!

I love my Masks
The detail of the facial expressions are amazing. Using a duster once a week to keep them clean is cake. I would recommend this to anyone.

I am more than pleased with the 7 sins faces. They are so much better than the catalog pictures show ! Everyone that walks into my living room and sees them says "wow,those are awesome!" I love them !

Highly attractive--expressions very appropriate to various sins
Writing from my perspective as a professional woodcarver who specializes in portraits (and carousel art), I find the plaques to be well-conceived, competently executed and highly attractive. The depth of the modelling accentuates the facial features and also lends itself nicely to antiquing with harmonious accents.
I have mounted them underneath the overhang on my shop entry--three over each window. But I reserved the faced of LUST for my shop door where his leering visage greets all my visitors and warns them of what they might encounter should they enter my woodcarving workshop.

Have always loved this concept...
When I used to live in Washington, DC in the early 1970's there was a restaurant aptly named: "The Devil's Fork" (later called the Devil's Eye, now the Bohemian Cavern) with dark magic themed decor. The walls were done in lava rock and around the room there were seven scarlet velvet-lined niches, each back-lit with wrought iron near-life-sized silhouettes of the seven deadly sins. These wall plaques remind me of that restaurant. What's needed is to also offer a metal seven pointed star wall hanger upon which to display these--- the Owner could tease rotating with 'the sin of the day'. LOL

"The Seven Deadly Sins" are a festival of 'gesture' and 'symbolism'; each portraying one of the so-called deadliest of Heaven-blockers!
"The Seven Deadly Sins" are a festival of gesture and symbolism, each portraying the very human search for status, pleasure and wealth that we all seem attracted to. The Medieval Church declared them as Heaven-Blockers, I guess... and yet, the priests, monks and bishops pursued them all with wild abandon! Thus, the monks' hooded garb was employed in these delightful bas-reliefs to show that they didn't "practice what they preached"!
Hahahaha! So human... cartoon-ishly humorous... the artist lavished his expertise upon the full range of human facial expression in a way that reflects each of the "sins". Magnificent and Bravo! Every guest has a comment about them!
