Dame vor dem Spiegel

More about this artwork
Vainly gazing into the mirror is traditionally attributed to the vice of Superbia (Pride) and stands for the transience of both beauty and earthly existence. Feather trimmings and lute playing, as symbols of lust and lasciviousness, admonish a sinful way of life.
